Dr. rer. nat. Judith Wesenberg
Judith Wesenberg (nee Machts) is a postdoctoral fellow funded by the Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences (CBBS) at the Institute for Cognitive Neurology and Dementia Research. She leads a project on the development of motor-free language assessments in neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases where she combines her expertise in functional and structural brain imaging with her background in neuropsychology. Apart from that, she has worked at the interface of Psychiatry and Neurology with a particular interest in psychiatric features leading to behavioral changes in neurodegenerative conditions. Within the C-I-R-C initiative, she will contribute to the investigation of (mal)adaptive circuits underlying interpersonal and social behavior. She closely collaborates with partners from the DZNE and LIN Magdeburg.
