TU Dresden is my Uni because here we protect body and soul. Only those who understand how stress works can combat it effectively.
The Faculty of Psychology with its 17 Chairs has been one of Germany’s leading psychological departments for years. My own professorship has around 30 employees. They contribute significantly to me being one of the most cited researchers at TU Dresden, according to Google Scholar.
The research of my professorship focusses on the subject of stress, which is looked at in a number of different projects, e.g. in the Dresden Burnout Study. We investigate how the psyche and especially the body react to stress. In this context, the effects of stress on our brain play a central role.
The brain I am holding here was created by the Spanish-American artist Pablo Garcia Lopez. It consists of dyed silk strands. Garcia Lopez is also a neuroscientist and wrote his doctoral thesis about the life and work of the Spanish neuroanatomist and Nobel Laureate Ramon y Cajal. The Baltimore-based artist exhibited his silk brain and other works in 2011 as part of the exhibition ”Images of the Mind” at the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum.
