Brain Changes in Response to Long Antarctic Expeditions

Asst. Prof. Dr. Alexander Stahn has led a long duration study to investigate isolation and confinement in Antarctica on the human brain. The results were published in the "New England Journal of Medicine". A social media-video can be found by clicking the picture above (credit: "Social Media Charité").

Interview about our research activities (German language)

"We think cell communication might be tied to gravity-sensing and we are
exploring unexpected changes in human skeletal muscle cell communication
when the force of gravity is not pulling on astronauts."
