Neuroplasticity and Learning in Normal Aging

Head: Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Martin Meyer

As of 31.08.2017 the research unit "Neuroplasticity and Learning in the Healthy Aging Brain" is terminated.

This webpage will hence no longer be updated.

We thank you for your support and interest in our research during the past six years.
