Faculty and Research

How do memories allow us to imagine the future? | How do we suppress unwanted memories of the past? [more]
Principles of motor control | Mechanisms of neuronal plasticity and motor learning |  Development of new protocols of brain stimulation for treating neurological symptoms [more]
Our group takes a computational approach to uncover the neural mechanisms that underlie human pain perception and its cognitive modulation with a special focus on the spinal cord. [more]
The department of Neuropsychology’s research agenda is to identify the functional architecture of language and its neural bases in the mature and the developing human brain. [more]
Cognitive and neural mechanisms of voluntary action and of bodily awareness. [more]
How does the human brain adapt to challenges? Our research group is interested in systems neuroplasticity as a mechanism for adaptation during cognition. [more]
How does our brain allow us to make sense of our visual world? Our group works on unraveling the cascade of visual and semantic processing in the human brain and discover how the emerging representations allow us to interact effectively with our environment. T [more]
Deficits in social interaction are a central issue across many mental disorders. The overarching goals of my research are  [more]

How can a network of cells perceive, represent, and make sense of the world around it? Experimental techniques such as high-resolution, multi-modal magnetic resonance imaging, light-sheet microscopy, or single-cell sequencing provide unprecedented insights into the structures and processes of neural systems and life in general. However, these methods yield high-dimensional data with intricate structures and dependencies that can be challenging to interpret.  [more]

Cognitive neuropsychiatry, i.e. explaining clinical characteristics of neuropsychiatric diseases in terms of cognitive neuroscience & affected brain networks | Identifying neural correlates & facilitate new treatment approaches | Focus on neurodegenerative / dementia syndromes, depression & schizophrenia [more]
Our lab explores the developmental origins of intelligent behavior. We conduct brain imaging studies with children from all over the world. [more]
Our research group aims to gain insight in the neural coding properties underlying key aspects of human intelligence. [more]
How does brain structure support human cognition? To answer this question the cognitive neurogenetics groups studies: [more]
