Professor Carsten Finke is Heisenberg Professor for Cognitive Neurology and Consultant Neurologist at the Department of Neurology at Charité Berlin.

He is a faculty member of the Berlin School of Mind and Brain and member of the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin.

He is also a founding member and member of the scientific council of the German Network for Research on Autoimmune Encephalitis (GENERATE). His research focuses on cognitive deficits and associated brain imaging alterations in neurological disorders with a specific interest in neuroimmunological diseases, especially autoimmune encephalitis. The aim of this research is to identify early (imaging) biomarkers that help to improve the diagnosis and treatment and, ultimately, the outcome of these disorders.

His group uses a broad range of methods, including advanced structural and functional MRI studies in humans and animal models, comprehensive neuropsychological assessments as well as immersive and non-immersive virtual reality setups.
