Research group for Cognitive Neuroscience
Mostphotos

We are interested in the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive functioning as well as how psychological factors can influence neural measures. While a basic-science approach is the basis of our work, we are also interested in the translation of basic findings into clinical applications.

Our lab applies different neuroimaging and psychophysiological methods, among others, EEG, fMRI, tDCS, eye-movement recordings, startle-reflex and skin conductance measures. The research group is involved in projects across a large range of topics, among others, the neural basis of pain and placebo, transcranial direct-current stimulation and the neural basis of day-dreaming (see projects).
