Clinical Translation and Intervention

Project area C is dedicated to the investigation of the genetic/epigenetic, neuronal network (fMRI, MEG) and psychophysiological (EEG, Startle) underpinnings of anxiety disorders and their possible use as biomarkers of therapy efficacy. Additionally, novel interventions such as rTMS are tested for their potential as an adjunct to standard therapies of anxiety disorders.
