Department of Neurology

 

>

The Department of Neurology is a highly specialized local reference center covering all fields of clinical neurology. The department is active in basic and clinical neurological and neuroscience research, clinical trials, and in the education of medical students.

Major clinical foci are acute stroke therapy, cerebrovascular interventions, epileptology, movement disorders, dementia, and multiple sclerosis. The neurology department comprises a Comprehensive Stroke Care Unit, a Neurological Intensive Care Unit, regular wards and specialized out-patient clinics for the topics mentioned above.
Our basic research efforts include:

  • movement disorders (Parkinson, ataxia, dystonia, tremor), in particular evaluation for interventional therapeutic options (section neuromodulation) under the aspects brain imaging, neurogenetics and kinesiology
  • molecular neurogenetics of neurodegenerative diseases, including transgenic mouse models (spinocerebellar ataxia type 2, Parkinson’s disease, spastic paraplegia, dystonia ).
  • cognitive neurology (including high-field functional magnetic resonance tomography electroencephalography and magnetoencephalography),
  • vascular neurology (experimental models of cerebral ischemia and thrombolysis, molecular markers of cerebral ischemia and hemorrhage, pathophysiology of cerebral small vessel disease, ultrasonology)
  • post-stroke plasticity of the human motor cortex, including transcranial magnetic stimulation and neuropharmacological modifaction.

We are highly experienced in the design and supervision of GCP multicenter clinical trials (investigator sponsored trials). A investigator sponsored clinical trial investigating the prevention of post stroke depression has been completed recently.
