CRC/Transregio TRR 296, Project P07 LocoTact: A brain imaging approach to TH function in consequence to mutations in TH receptors and transporter proteins

Project: DFG ProjectsDFG Joint Research: Collaborative Research Center/ Transregios

Project Details


TH action is critical for the human brain. TH action is mediated by a number of molecules, e.g. TH transporters and receptors (THT, TR). We aim to demonstrate that genetic variations in THTs and TRs contribute to the neuropsychological phenotype and, by using multimodal brain imaging and electrophysiology, will identify the underlying systems-level neural mechanisms.
