Clinical & Biological Psychology

The Clinical and Biological Psychology work group analyzes the role of gene x environment-interactions in the development, symptomatology and treatment of psychiatric disorders. Traumatic stress and critical life events are main environmental factors in the etiology of psychiatric disorders and need to be  modelled if one wants to understand trauma spectrum disorders such as depression or posttraumatic stress disorder. We use biomolecular methods to investigate the health consequences of (traumatic) stress on the endocrine system and the  immune system with a focus on processes of premature aging. In addition, we use imaging (EEG, [f]MRI) to study brain alterations in health and disease.
