My research is concerned with the malleability of perception and action. I study how individual differences in cognitive control resources shape the interplay between perception and sensorimotor control, including eye and hand movements as well as postural stability. I use ageing as the most powerful proxy for individual differences in cognitive control capacities that allows insights into the mechanisms of optimizing and stabilizing behaviour given limited resources. In addition, I am interested in adaptive mechanisms in the context of clinical neuropsychology and explore how patients with dysfunctions of the brain cope with functional challenges. My goal is to better understand functional interactions and to characterize synergies as well as interferences.
