The Laboratory for Multimodal Neuroimaging (LMN) is an interdisciplinary research group. It is located at the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Marburg and is headed by Prof. Andreas Jansen. The main focus of research is the investigation of the neural basis of cognition. The research questions are addressed by a variety of methods including behavioral experiments, multimodal imaging techniques (in particular magnetic resonance imaging, MRI) and computational modelling approaches.

The Laboratory for Multimodal Neuroimaging operates, as one of the Core-Facilities of the University of Marburg, a 3 Tesla MRI scanner, various other brain imaging devices (e.g. EEG, eye tracker) and specialized IT infrastructure. It offers access to state-of-the-art brain imaging technology to both colleagues from the University of Marburg and external collaborators.

The processing of faces constitutes a fundamental ability of the human mind. Neuroimaging studies can help to understand the underlying distributed neural network.

In this function, it collaborates with various research consortia, for instance the Research Unit FOR-2107 (“Neurobiology of Affective Disorders)”, the nationwide BMBF-funded multicenter consortia BIPOLIFEPROTECT-AD and ASD-NET and the Collaborative Research Centres SFB/TRR-135 (“Cardinal Mechanisms of Perception”) and SFB-TRR-289 (“Treatment Expectation”).
