Population Neuroscience (PONS)

You are here:

The research division Population Neuroscience (PONS) aims at establishing and analysing big neuroimaging genetic datasets to precisely identify brain mechanisms underlying behaviour, and their genetic and environmental mediators, thus enabling prediction and stratification of mental disorders. The generation of well-characterised large scale databases internationally, the advent of deep phenotyping through biological assessments, including neuroimaging and –omics technologies, and the development of novel computer science and statistical tools to relate and analyse different data levels enable powerful new solutions to elucidate the biological basis of dysfunctional behaviour and mental disorders in its environmental context on a population-wide and global scale.
