Cognition in neurological disorders, memory disorders, neuroimaging
Current statusPostdoctoral researcher
Research areaCognition in neurological disorders, memory disorders, neuroimaging
DescriptionI am interested in the role of the immune system in cognitive disorders (e.g. memory deficits). We study immune-mediated neurological diseases using immunofluorescence techniques, cognitive testing, and neuroimaging. In one project, we investigate how autoantibodies against brain antigens alter neuronal function and cognitive abilities (e.g. in autoimmune encephalitis and paraneoplastic neurological syndromes). My second area of interest is functional connectivity of the brain and its alterations in neurological diseases using structural and resting-state functional MRI.

Current statusPostdoctoral researcher
Research areaAffective neuroscience; personal/social relevance; simultaneous EEG-fMRI; autism
DescriptionI am interested in the impact of emotional information on human cognition and behavior. My research focused on emotion effects in written and spoken language, facial expressions and pictorial stimuli using event-related potentials and pupillometry. Furthermore, I’m interested in the susceptibility of the visual cortex to emotion, attention and reward. At present, I am investigating emotional face perception in neurotypical functioning and in autism spectrum disorders using simultaneous EEG/fMRI and pupillometry techniques.

Cognitive representation; Computation; Cognitive Ontology
Current statusPostdoctoral researcher
Research areaCognitive representation; Computation; Cognitive Ontology
DescriptionMy main focus is on the notions of representation and computation in the cognitive sciences. Questions that I have been tackling include: what are the best candidate theories of representation and computation for the study of cognition? Can we provide a naturalistic account of representation and of computation? Do we actually need to? More recently, I got interested in debates on cognitive ontology, especially with an eye to the relevance of issues pertaining to cognitive representation and computation to those discussions.

DescriptionI study how mental processes like thoughts or feelings relate to brain-body and especially brain-heart interactions in pathology and health. I conduct psychophysiological and neuroimaging studies in classical lab-based experiments but also using more naturalistic setups like ambulatory assessment and virtual reality.

Current statusPostdoctoral researcher
Research areaPhilosophy of Cognitive Science, Bayesian brain, Dynamical Systems Theory, Brain modelling, Ontology of Cognition, Enactive cognitive science
DescriptionI work on the intersection between cognitive ontology and computational cognitive neuroscience. I use logical analysis to question the traditional computationalist account of cognition, and motivate a dynamical systems approach to cognition. Specifically, variational Bayes (VB), Dynamical Causal Modelling (DCM), and the Free Energy Principle (FEP).

Current statusPostdoctoral researcher
Research areaSocial neuroscience, affective neuroscience, embodied simulation, action understanding, intersubjectivity
DescriptionWe are researching the constitution of the self in dependence of others through intersubjectivity and embodied simulation using techniques such as EEG and fMRI. I earned my PhD at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain examining the influence of interpersonal abilities on social decisions and their physiological correlates. I was combining game theoretical paradigms with neurophysiological recordings (EEG) in order to understand the biological underpinnings of cooperation behavior. Beforehand I studied Psychology, Communication Studies and Political Science at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität in Berlin and University of California, Berkeley.

Current statusPostdoctoral researcher
Research areaDigital diagnostics, cognitive rehabilitation, virtual reality, consciousness, computational image analysis, biomarkers in neuroimaging
DescriptionI am interested in the development of diagnostic and therapeutic clinical strategies based on computationally guided approaches in cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging. Specifically, the aim of the “VReha” project is to implement an ecologically valid and observer-independent digital tool for the diagnosis and rehabilitation of cognitive deficits based on virtual environments. A second research interest concerns analytical approaches to brain complexity, both on a structural (e.g. fractal analysis) and on a system level (e.g. information integration in consciousness), as well as the ensuing theoretical framework and computational application.
