Prof. Dr. Kristine Krug
Kristine Krug heads the Department of Sensory Physiology in the Institute of Biology and is an external scientific member at the Leibniz-Institute for Neurobiology in Magdeburg. She runs a research programme investigating the neural circuits underlying perception and decision-making in humans and monkeys. Her major expertise lies in directly linking neural circuits from single neurons in monkeys to cognitive behaviour across primates, both in health and disease. Utilising neural activity manipulation inside the high-field scanners at Magdeburg, she will contribute to the exploration of neural access points for psychiatric disease intervention and collaborate on the translation of those findings to patients.
