Prof. Dr. Simon B. Eickhoff

Research Interests

  • Methods development for coordinate-based meta-analyses of functional neuroimaging data and neuroinformatics approaches towards database-driven analyses and integration
  • Organizational principles of the human brain, in particular the relationship between its regional specialization into distinct modules and functional integration
  • Multi-modal analyses, integration and comparison of different approaches towards structural, functional and effective connectivity
  • Brain mechanisms and processes underlying sensory-motor transformation, higher order action control including attention and social-emotional processing
  • Translational research on the systems biology of pathophysiological processes underlying neurological and psychiatric disorders
