In May 2020 the Albrecht lab started its work at the Institute of Anatomy at the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg, Germany.

Our research focusses on understanding the functional neuroanatomy of stress adaptation and emotional memory formation.

The lab on tour

Our lab took part in many local and international activities in 2022 and 2023 (so far), such as the FENS meeting in July 2022 in Paris, the annual german-speaking anatomist meeting in September 2022 or the NWG Meeting in Göttingen in March 2023.
