Head: Professor Dr. Arno Villringer
The MindBrainBody Institute is situated at the graduate school Berlin School of Mind and Brain of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. It is closely linked both to the graduate school and to the Department of Neurology at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig (NRO-CBS).
The Institute performs research in three areas related to mind–brain–body interactions:
- The somatosensory system
- Mind–body–emotion interactions and stress (and their relation to vascular risk factors like hypertension)
- Stroke (focussing on somatosensory symptoms and pain & emotional disturbance)
Research projects are performed in close partnership with other groups at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, at NRO-CBS, the German competence net Stroke, the Excellence Cluster NeuroCure at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin), the Center for Stroke Research Berlin (CSB), and the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience.
