10th anniversary of the IKND
The Institute for Cognitive Neurology and Dementia Research celebrates its 10th anniversary!
On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the IKND, an anniversary symposium took place on December 6th, 2018 in the conference room of the DZNE.
The Institute for Cognitive Neurology and Dementia Research emerged in 2008 from the Clinical Research Group "Normal and Disturbed Cognitive Control of Memory Functions".
The IKND investigates the mechanisms of higher cognitive brain functions, such as memory, motivation, targeted action, decision making and behavioral control. A particular focus is on the investigation of disorders of these brain functions in old age and neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia.
In addition to the Director of the Institute, Prof. Dr. Emrah Düzel, the Rector of the Otto-von-Guericke University, Prof. Dr. Jens Strackeljan, and the Director of Neurology at the University Hospital Magdeburg, Prof. Dr. Hans-Jochen Heinze, gave a speech at the ceremony. Afterwards, two former doctoral students and current cooperation partners of the IKND presented the results of their outstanding research.
Dr. Anne Maass, scientist at the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases in Madeburg and Dr. David Berron, scientist at Lund University in Sweden, gave an exciting lecture at the end of the event.
