DescriptionMy research deals with different aspects of cognitive and motor control and how they are implemented in the human brain. One research line investigates the role of prefrontal cortex in cognitive flexibility. This research also addresses the question how verbal instructions are implemented in our motor system. Furthermore, I am interested in the intentional control of human behaviour. This research deals with the brain correlates of human volition and self-control. Finally, I also investigate the role of shared representations of perception and action in social cognition. To M&B members I can offer research experience in the neural bases of cognitive control, social cognition and human volition and methodological experience in fMRI, TMS, EEG and behavioural research.

DescriptionThe neurobiological basis of the interaction between cognitive and affective processes. How subcortical, prefrontal and sensory cortex interact in the production and regulation of emotional behaviour. The neural changes associated with Anxiety Disorders and Depression, specifically top-down cortical regulation of subcortical neural circuits.
