The Brain States for Plasticity Lab is an independent research group at the MPI for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen, Germany and is headed by Dr. Svenja Brodt.
Our lab aims to understand how information is encoded and stored in the human brain on the systems level.
Which brain networks contribute to information storage across the entire lifecycle of a memory and how is information distributed within these networks? How do different brain states like sleep, wake and transitional states shape the architecture of memory? How can we measure human neuroplasticity noninvasively and in vivo?
To answer these questions, we combine behavioral paradigms with multimodal neuroimaging methods (fMRI, dwMRI, sMRI, EEG) and multivariate analysis techniques.
