Staiger, Jochen, Prof. Dr.


Professor of Neuroanatomy


  • 1993 Graduation as Dr. med. at the Medical Faculty of the
    Justus-Liebig-University Giessen; grade: summa cum laude

  • 1994 - 2000 Post-doc at the C. & O. Vogt-Institute for Brain Research, Düsseldorf, (Head: Prof. Dr. K. Zilles); Leader of the research group „Cortical microcircuits“

  • 2000 Habilitation and Venia legendi for Anatomy at the Medical Faculty of the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf

Major Research Interests


  • Developmental plasticity induced by early postnatal deprivation of sensory stimulation in mice with intact or genetically altered thalamo-cortical projections

  • Thalamo-cortical interactions as the first stage of cortical information processing

  • Microcircuits in columnar modules – examining the Bauplan of synaptic connectivity of neocortex

  • Tactile learning: Genomic regulation of experience-dependent plasticity in the trigeminal somatosensory system
