Research Focus

  • Attention mechanisms in the human visual system using psychophysical, neuroimaging (fMRI) and causal modelling methods
  • Developing a computational model of visual attention and couple it closely with our experimental results
  • Cortical areas and mechanisms which control attention during search
  • Physiological and anatomical basis as well as functional relevance of interhemisheric connections between both primary motor cortices
  • Physiological basis of the neurovascular signal in functional imaging
  • Functional connectivity of the motor system
  • Application and further development of a dynamical systems approach to movement coordination
  • Detection, resolution and behavioral consequences of conflicts at different levels of information processing investigated in psychophysical, EEG, fMRI and lesion studies
