Dr. Esther Kühn

Esther Kühn is head of the Cortical Microstructure Research Group. She runs a research program on adaptive and maladaptive plasticity of the human sensorimotor system that she investigates using ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging in combination with behavioral assessments, VR, and interventions. Her research aim is to understand and treat pathological brain states, in particular those that lead to maladaptive behavior. She will contribute to the center by her ERC awarded research program on body memory that investigates how maladaptive memory formation contributes to the development of somatic symptoms and somatoform disorders, and how it can be used to optimize their diagnosis and treatment.
