FunctionProfessor of Experimental Psychology
Current statusAssociated researcher
Research areaVisual cognition, timing and temporal perception, electrophysiology (EEG)
DescriptionOur Berlin group investigates the mechanisms of object recognition and scene perception, as well as temporal aspects of vision and cognition − how time is represented and how it is used for information processing. We also study how event-related and spontaneous electrophysiological oscillations are involved in perception and cognition. We use traditional behavioural methods, psychophysics and EEG recordings in humans. http://www.oszillab.net/niko-busch.php

Current statusAssociated researcher
Research areaVision, visual cognition, object recognition, representational similarity analysis, machine learning
DescriptionOur main interest is human visual cognition – that is, we investigate how the brain represents visual objects and scenes. We investigate (1) how the brain transforms sensory into abstract representations, (2) the task dependency of those representation, and (3) the plasticity of the underlying neural architecture studying visual cortex in the blind. We use a combination of methods (fMRI, M/EEG, deep neural networks), and analyse data in an integrated framework using with machine learning techniques and representational similarity analysis.

Grounded numerical and mathematical cognition
FunctionResearch group leader (Emmy Noether program of the DFG)
Research areaGrounded numerical and mathematical cognition
DescriptionOur group investigates the neuro-functional and cognitive foundations of numerical competencies. Activities are based on the assumption that our mental arithmetic capabilities are grounded in the innate number sense, i.e. the ability to perceive and differentiate numerosities. Research questions include: “How does the number sense relate to mathematical performance?” – “How do specific brain regions contribute to numerical cognition and why?” We use psychophysical methods and functional imaging techniques (magnetic resonance imaging) to approach these issues.

FunctionProfessor
Current statusAssociated Researcher
Research areaCognitive neuroscience, neural mechanisms of human communication
DescriptionOur research question is: How does the human brain accomplish fast and robust communication? Currently, our work focuses on three aspects of auditory and face-to-face communication: i. Speech recognition ii. Person recognition iii. Interaction of auditory and visual modalities during face-to-face communication. We perform experiments involving several methods of systems neuroscience (functional MRI, structural MRI, MEG, tDCS) and different subject groups, i.e. healthy controls, as well as people with selective developmental or acquired deficits (phonagnosia, prosopagnosia, autism spectrum conditions, dyslexia). We additionally collaborate with theoretical neuroscientists to motivate computational models of human communication.

Current statusAssociated researcher
Research areaEvolutionary cognitive neuroscience, social cognition, neuroeconomics, neurolaw
DescriptionAs a cognitive neuroscientist, I am interested in understanding the neural architecture of social cognition in the human prefrontal cortex (PFC).By combining structural and functional neuroimaging, neuropsychological testing, and molecular neurogenetics, I pursue the following two research lines in studying human social cognition and PFC functions. The first line of research attempts to understand the role of the PFC in cooperative (e.g., trust) and competitive decision making (e.g., aggression) while interacting in social relationships. The second line of research attempts to answer the question how the PFC mediates social beliefs (e.g., moral, legal, political, religious) in the context of institutions.

Research areaCortical network, active cellular properties, binding problem, behaviour, neuroimaging, electrophysiology.
DescriptionWe look at the contribution of single-cell computation to the cortical network. We are particularly interested in the computational enhancement arising from active dendritic properties. We are currently testing a hypothesis that the fine and large-scale architecture of the cortex dovetails with the cellular properties of cortical pyramidal neurons to enhance the associative properties of the network (Larkum, 2013). If correct this hypothesis might have ramifications for the operation of the cortex and various associated problems (e.g. the binding problem). Larkum, M.

DescriptionThe lifespan developmental neuroscience group at TU Dresden investigates neurobiological and contextual mechanisms of cognitive, motivational, and emotional development from early childhood to old age. A central theme focuses on the interplays between neuronal factors (e.g., neuromodulatory functions) and contextual factors (e.g., reward, stress, substance abuse, cognitive intervention or non-invasive brain stimulations) in affecting development in different and across life periods.

Research areaConnectivity, resting state fMRI, cortical organization, topography
DescriptionMy research investigates the organization of large-scale brain networks, primarily through the analysis of intrinsic activity as measured with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). I have developed approaches to define subregions within complex cortical areas, conducted cross-species comparative neuroanatomical studies, and related variation in these networks to phenotypic differences across individuals. My current research addresses the emergence of network topography and its relationship to cortical structure.

Research areaMemory and Cognition, Cognitive Neuroscience, EEG
DescriptionMy research addresses how the human mind integrates most different types of information, from sensory input to high-level abstractions in memory. I primarily use EEG, among other techniques, to characterize the interplay of perceptual, attentional, and mnemonic processes in terms of large-scale oscillatory network dynamics. Current projects in particular focus on the post-sensory processing of abstract quantity information, as a basis for comparative judgment and adaptive choice.
