Preprint
The functional topography of the human primary somatosensory cortex (S1) hand area is a widely studied model system to understand sensory organization and plasticity. It is so far unclear whether or not the underlying 3D structural architecture also shows a topographic organization. We used 7T MRI data to quantify layer-specific myelin, iron and mi...
Preprint
Age-related cortical plasticity reveals insights into the mechanisms underlying the stability and flexibility of neuronal circuits. Classical parcellation has long demonstrated the importance of microstructural features yet 3D approaches have rarely been applied to human brain organization in-vivo. We acquired functional and structural 7T-MRI and b...

Topographic maps are a fundamental feature of cortex architecture in the mammalian brain. One common theory is that the de-differentiation of topographic maps links to impairments in everyday behavior due to less precise functional map readouts. Here, we tested this theory by characterizing de-differentiated topographic maps in primary somatosensor...

Thesis
The human sense of touch develops throughout life. With advancing age, tactile sensitivity tends to decrease. Lately, healthy aging of the human brain has been considered to be rich in microstructural gray matter plasticity. Little is known about how this links to changes in tactile behavior. Recent advances in ultra-high field magnetic resonance i...

Bodily awareness is a central component of human sensation, action, and cognition. The human body is subject to profound changes over the adult lifespan. We live in an aging society: the mean age of people living in industrialized countries is currently over 40 years, and further increases are expected. Nevertheless, there is a lack of comprehensiv...

NMDA-dependent Hebbian learning drives neuronal plasticity in different cortical areas, and across species. In the primary somatosensory cortex (S-I), Hebbian learning is induced via the persistent low-rate afferent stimulation of a small area of skin. In particular, plasticity is induced in superficial cortical layers II/III of the S-I cortex that...
