Who are we


LREN is a neuroimaging laboratory where clinical and basic neuroscientists study human brain structure and function relevant to healthy ageing and neurodegeneration. We develop and apply non-invasive neuroimaging methods - magnetic resonance imaging and electro-encephalography to investigate topics including use-dependent brain plasticity, mood disorders and neurodegeneration.

LREN is responsible for a state-of-the-art neuroimaging platform featuring high-end research-only Siemens Prisma 3T MRI scanner, sophisticated MRI compatible neurophysiological equipment and high-density EEG machines. 

LRENs main goal is to translate basic research findings into clinical applications for early diagnosis of disease and for prediction of clinical outcome.





LREN is extremely grateful to the Roger De Spoelberch Foundation for their generous financial support







LREN's research activities are also supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Leenaards Foundation
