In our intererdisciplinary research approach we integrate the disciplines of psychiatry, neuroscience, psychology and philosophy in the investigation of the human mind and its disorders. The common guiding principle is that the traditional strict separation between mind and brain is obsolete. Our methodological focus is the field of neuroimaging as part of the larger endeavour of the cognitive neurosciences. Neuroimaging focuses on the system level of the brain and thus helps to bridge the large gap between the molecular and the psychological sciences.
