Short info

As Professor for Translational Neuroimaging it is my aim to fill the need for translating basic research from experimental psychology and neuroimaging to clinical investigations in patients with mental disorders, in particular schizophrenia and anxiety disorders. In general, I’m interested in predictive neural mechanisms in a multisensory environment as well as adaptive behavior reflected in learning, memory and neuro-functional plasticity (e.g., in context of psychotherapy). Additionally, I’m concerned with interdisciplinary research questions of how the human brain gives rise to complex processes such as Theory of mind, social interactions and communication. I combine fMRI, EEG or non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (tDCS) with a variety of experimental paradigms to understand the adaptive and maladaptive functions of the human brain.
