The Würzburg neuroscience community consists of four focal areas, each encompassing several independent research groups. 

The cellular and molecular approaches encompass axonal dynamics, developmental Neurobiology, traumatic brain injury processes, basic cellular and disease mechanisms in spinal muscular atrophy.

Several groups focus on synaptic architecture and function using electron and super-resolution light microscopy, electrophysiology and imaging approaches.

Approaches towards understanding circuit- and network functions work with cell culture, fly, fish and rodent model systems as well as with human subjects.

Two major clinical areas, Psychiatry and Neurology conduct research with a focus on Anxiety and Movement disorders.
