The research objectives are to obtain knowledge and develop innovative technologies within pain neuroscience
Our research is focused on the neural processing of sensory input using a translational research approach. This includes studying spinal mechanisms and cognitive aspects of experiencing different sensory stimulation paradigms (mostly nociceptive input). We use sophisticated electrophysiological techniques and advanced psychophysics. Moreover, neuronal plasticity in spinal and cortical sensory-motor processing. The research group has a special focus on pain neuroscience.
The Integrative Neuroscience group consists of specialists from the Biomedical Engineering, Medicine, and Biophysics fields. The interdisciplinary character of the group enables us to holistically approach applied as well as fundamental research questions in neuroscience.
Teaching and Training
Members of the group teach at The Doctoral School of Medicine, Biomedical Science and Engineering, and at bachelor and master levels in the Biomedical Engineering and Informatics, Medicine with Industrial Specialization, and Clinical Science and Technology programs. The scope of the courses includes electronics, instrumentation, data acquisition, physics, bioelectricity, research methodology and scientific communication, biostatistics, and neurophysiology.
