Stroke, depression and dementia: these are associated with micro-failures in brain communication. FAU researchers are looking at what exactly happens in these situations and are hoping to identify possible ways of preventing permanent brain damage and speeding up the healing processes.
These training programmes, which are provided online and can also be accessed using a smartphone, are designed to help sufferers prevent and deal with depression. Researchers at FAU have won awards for their work in this field.
In the annual Times Higher Education World University Ranking, the FAU was again listed among the top 200 universities for 2018.
