Bernstein Group for Computational Neuroscience (BGCN)

"Model-based, spatiotemporal systems analysis of the brain’s neuromatrix of pain"

The scientific objectives of the Bernstein group focus on the identification and quantification of time-variant directed information transfer between interacting areas of the brain’s neuromatrix of pain on the basis of data derived from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG). To achieve this, new developments of appropriate time-variant multivariate methods of analysis and strategies of adapted dynamic modelling are indispensable. A combination of advanced functional neuroimaging techniques and new analysis methods is required to solve questions in basic and applied neuroscience of pain and to deepen current concepts about how the brain processes noxious input and generates pain.
