They examine risk and protective factors, neurobiological correlates, and clinical and functional outcomes of adolescents with self-harm and emerging BPD. PI: Prof. Dr. Michael Kaess [External Link]
  • University of California, Irvine / Thayer Lab: Focus on psychophysiological aspects of self-regulation, particularly parasympathetic influences on physical and mental health including hypertension, anxiety, and depression. PI: Prof. Dr. Julian F. Thayer [External Link]

  • Max-Planck-Institute for Metabolism / Translational Neurocircuitry: The groups’ main research focus concerns the physiological pathways by which internal bodily signals are communicated to the brain to interact with reward processing and motivated behaviour. PI: Prof. Dr. Marc Tittgemeyer [External Link]
  • University of Dresden / Behavioural Epidemiology Group: The group focusses on psychological and behavioural factors, including cognitive-affective factors, in health and disease, considering interactions with genetic and social-environmental determinants.
