Cognitive neuroscience and neurophysiology
FunctionSenior Consultant
Research areaCognitive neuroscience and neurophysiology
DescriptionThe “Vision and Motor System Research Group” (VMSRG) is devoted to basic experimental as well as clinical research on the field of cognitive neurology and clinical neurophysiology of the visual and the motor system. Our principal goal is to apply novel findings from cognitive and psychophysiological research to current challenges in clinical neurology. In so doing we aim at contributing to improved diagnostic and therapeutical strategies for disorders of the visual and the motor system. Thus, we employ a rich interdisciplinary methodological repertoire to address the physiological complexity of the visual and the motor system and their interactions: We combine psychophysics (reaction time tasks, eye movement tracking, threshold estimation) and psychophysiological measures, e.g. obtained by electroencephalography (EEG) or functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), with modern innovations in transcranial brain stimulation. This includes our successful application of navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS).

DescriptionOur research group analyses cellular mechanisms underlying sensorimotor integration. The model system we focus on is the active touch / vibrissal system of mammals. We pursue research questions from a strictly systemic, neuroethological perspective. We pose a wide range of questions to understand better the systemic performance of active touch mediated by the vibrissae. We therefore investigate multiple brain structures and our investigations range from intracellular recordings to the analysis of behavioral performance.

DescriptionResearch Fields. Our group is active in the field of "neurophysics and cognition" in the following major areas: studies on the psychophysiology of motor intention - the 'free will' problem (together with KR Mueller at Fraunhofer FIRST; sensorimotor integration in language production (together with R. Hari at Espoo, Finland); studies on the psychophysiology of music perception (together with G. Neuloh at Neurosurgery of University Bonn); studies on the neurophysiological underpinnings of face recognition (together with the Departments of Psychology at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Freie Universität Berlin). Interdisciplinary approach. Our research is focused on the interface between human cortical neurophysiology and the humanities and encompasses a broad range of issues, covering the free will debate of philosophy, including also legal aspects such as 'lie detection', concepts of language production from linguistic psychophysiology, a variant of the nature/nurture dispute as exemplified by conscious versus unconscious processing of music stimuli which are either unknown or overlearned in the Western tonal tradition, and the role of memory and attention in the recognition of human faces as one perceptual key element influencing social interaction in peer groups.

DescriptionMy research is focused on stroke, cerebral blood flow regulation, and brain imaging. We explore mechanisms by which brain ischemia leads to cell death, and develop novel methods to intercept mechanisms of damage in acute brain damage, as well as to foster regeneration and repair of the lesions. In clinical trials we validate our experimental findings and test the bedside efficacy of therapeutic strategies developed at the bench. Closely linked to the interest in stroke pathophysiology, which is caused by a focal reduction in blood flow to the brain, is our interest in the mechanisms that couple regional blood flow to neuronal acitivity, a mechanisms that is underlying functional brain imaging with MR and PET.

DescriptionThe main goal of our research is to investigate the "how" and "where" of the various subcomponents of language processing in the brain. In order to understand the dynamic organization of the language processor (i.e., the "how"), we use behavioral measures and electrophysiological methods (EEG, MEG). The neuroanatomical organization of language (i.e., the "where") is targeted by the investigation of neurological patients with language disorders and the use of new brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

DescriptionTraditional research on decision-making, including neuroeconomics, is dominated by an unrealistic view of cognition that pictures the mind as a Bayesian optimizer. I study how real people make decisions when information and time are limited, and the future is uncertain. The key questions are (i) what heuristics and evolved capacities are in the adaptive toolbox of a species, (ii) in what tasks does which heuristic succeed, and (iii) how can we design efficient artificial decision algorithms (and environments) based on the results of this research.

DescriptionEarly adverse experience, such as childhood abuse, neglect and loss, is a major risk factor for the development of a wide range of psychiatric disorders and certain medical diseases later in life. My research employs a multi-methodological approach to integrate clinical and developmental psychology with methods from functional and structural neuroimaging, neuroendocrinology, immunology, and genetics to elucidate the role of developmental factors in contributing to the psychobiological basis of complex psychiatric and somatic disorders. Results from this research will ultimately lead to improved diagnosis of cases at risk versus resilience, as well as targeted prevention and treatment, through an integrated consideration of early developmental and biological processes.

We are interested in how rapidly comprehenders can exploit different contextual cues (e.g., using eye tracking or event-related brain potentials) but also in protracted context effects (e.g., as revealed in post-experiment comprehension and memory test scores). Ongoing research efforts consider to which extent and how extra-linguistic context plays a role for learning.

Research areaAssociative learning, memory consolidation, neural correlates of associative plasticity at the network level
DescriptionWe study the neural basis of learning and memory in an insect, the honeybee. Starting from behavioural analysis we determine neural correlates of associative learning using intracellular, extracellular recordings and Ca imaging. The network properties of associative plasticity are modelled, and predictions are made to guide our experimental approach. We take advantage of the fact that this insect not only learns a whole range of stimuli under natural conditions but also when it is set up for recording and imaging.

Research areaStatistical learning theory for neural networks, support vector machines and ensemble learning techniques
DescriptionMy research areas include statistical learning theory for neural networks, support vector machines and ensemble learning techniques. My contributions have furthermore covered the field of adaptive signal processing with emphasis on time-series analysis, statistical denoising methods and blind source separation. Application interests are currently focussed on the analysis of biomedical data, in particular on single trial analysis of electro-encephalography (EEG) data, which has most recently led to the successful establishing of the Berlin brain computer interface (jointly with Charité). Furthermore I have contributed to the application of machine learning techniques to genomic data, more precisely to microarray data analysis and to genefinding. Another important application focus is on hacker intrusion detection using machine learning technology for finding previously unseen attacks from network data. The major objective of my research is to pursue research all the way from theory to application. To this end, I am contributing to the generic theoretical development of new and well-founded data analysis and machine learning techniques that can be used in the natural sciences and in industry. At the same time the aim is to contribute to a better understanding and furthering of the underlying scientific question.

Investigating the basis of vascular imaging we address questions concerned with neurovascular coupling. We are interested e.g. in the vascular response to neuronal inhibition. The methodology also is valuable in infant research, where we address issues of language acquisition. Finally stroke research especially bedside monitoring of perfusion is a clinical focus of research.

FunctionProfessor
Current statusFaculty
Research areaNeuroscience of language and pragmatics: aphasia, neuropragmatics, language and action, language and emotion, neurocombinatorics, language perception and comprehension (MEG-EEG), meaning comprehension
DescriptionMy main interests in science are in the neurobiology of language. I have developed a model of language processing in the human brain, formulated at the level of nerve cell circuits which cut across perception and action systems of the brain. The model specifies neural circuits processing speech sounds, words, their meaning and the syntactic rules that influence their order in time. Words are envisaged to be represented in the brain by distributed cell assemblies whose cortical topographies reflect aspects of word meaning. The rules of syntax are proposed to be a product of the interplay between specialized neuronal units, called sequence detectors, and general principles of neuronal dynamics designed to control and regulate activity levels in cortical areas. Advances in the neuroscience of language are applied in the development of new language therapy techniques.

Research areaLanguage production, mental lexicon
DescriptionMy general area of interest is the study of spoken language production, particularly the retrieval of information from the mental lexicon (our long term memory storage of the words we know). I study the processes involved in lexical selection using both behavioural and brain imaging methods. I am particularly interested in how we resolve competition during the retrieval of words, either competition from related words in the same language or competition from a second language known by the speaker. Another area of interest is the question whether and in how far task demands can affect the core processes of language production.
