CoBeN – Novel Network-Based

Approaches for Studying

Cognitive Dysfunction

in Behavioral Neurology

About the project

The project will employ novel behavioral paradigms and state-of-the-art imaging techniques to:

  • identify neural underpinnings of language, speech and cognitive impairment in different patient groups (stroke, Parkinson’s disease, dementia) across three languages (Czech, English, Hungarian),
  • unravel the therapeutic potential of NIBS (non-invasive brain stimulation) by targeting and modulating distinct brain networks in these patients

The international collaboration between partners builds on the complementary expertise of researchers, promotes the transfer of knowledge, provides infrastructure to develop the careers of the staff members, and develops a new model for training future generations of behavioral neurologists.
