SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:
Besides the interest in gaining an interdisciplinary overview of the several subdisciplines of the exceedingly exciting field of neuroscience, I am especially interested in affective and other psychiatric disorders. My main goal therefore is to aquire the knowledge and the techniques, necessary to later perhaps contribute to a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms, and the development of new therapies of these pathological states of the human brain.
