The Functional, Molecular & Translational Neuroimaging Lab was founded in 2005 to integrate functional, structural and molecular neuroimaging expertise in clinical neurosciences in vivo. The objective was to establish an open interdisciplinary platform beyond department structures to support the knowledge transfer in neuroimaging methods within the MUW and between cooperating partners. This open network is a meeting place for research people and clinicians fascinated by the combination of promising new neuroimaging techniques and methods:

  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
  • Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT)
  • Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI, phfMRI) - How fMRI works
  • Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI, VBM)
  • Molecular and Functional Imaging of Neurogenetics (GenNI)
