The geometry of topological quantum field theories
ID: 204757
Start date: 2009-01-01, End date: 2014-06-30
The predictive power of quantum field theory (QFT) is a perpetual driving force in geometry. Examples include the invention of Frobenius manifolds, mixed twistor structures, primitive forms, and harmonic bundles, up to the discovery of the McKay correspondence, mirror symmetr...

Non-classical interacting random walks
ID: 208417
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2014-09-30
The proposed project deals with various topics in the area of random walks (RWs) which interact with their own history and/or a possibly non-homogeneous, random environment. Such models arise from physics and other natural sciences as simplified models of complex phenomena an...

Quantum optics in nanostructures
[PROJECT] OPTNANO - Quantum optics in nanostructures
ID: 210642
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
Nanomaterials are intriguing structures for quantum optics. Their color depends on their size and shape; they are very selective in the wavelengths they absorb and emit. Although nanostructures have been used to color windows and surfaces since the Middle Ages, we lack the un...

A neurodevelopmental approach to human language processing
ID: 209656
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-08-31
Despite a large number of studies on human language comprehension and its development, the neurocognitive system underlying normal and impaired language processing has yet not been characterized. In particular, it is currently debated whether different subsystems in language ...

Plasticity of the Empathic Brain: Structural and Functional MRI Studies on the Effect of Empathy Training on the Human Brain and Prosocial Behaviour
ID: 205557
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-08-31
Social neuroscientists study the neural mechanisms underlying our capacity to understand our own and other people’s feelings. Despite neuroscientists’ advances in plasticity research and empathy research, little is known about cortical and behavioural plasticity in emotion un...

Microbiology of Dehalococcoides-like Chloroflexi
ID: 202903
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2013-12-31
I propose to initiate research on a specific group of bacteria, here denominated as the “Dehalococcoides-like Chloroflexi”. This group of bacteria is formed by several cultivated strains of the genus Dehalococcoides and many sequences of uncultivated organisms mostly from mar...

Small RNA Mediated Epigenetics in Vertebrates
ID: 202819
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2014-07-31
Since the discovery of RNAi small RNA molecules have been under intense study. They have been shown to impact many different processes, ranging from development to organ function and carcinogenesis. Recently, it has become clear that many distinct small RNA families exist. Ho...
