Description

In our research we use neuroscientific methods to investigate basic cognitive processes, with a special interest in the multifaceted aspects of semantic processing. We focus on language production, the interface between vision, semantics and language, the functional organisation of semantic memory, attentional, emotional and semantic influences on visual perception, face and object perception, and mental imagery.

Description The “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).

Description Our 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.

Description Research 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.

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.

Description Traditional 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.

Lately, my group and I have been particularly interested in changes of brain-circuitries and somatic complaints in individuals who have developed deficits in emotion-regulation. We use molecular and brain imaging, brain stimulation techniques, genetics and preclinical studies - mostly in rodents - as well as psychological and developmental data to tackle the problem of “acquired” emotional dysregulation. As a board member of the Free University’s Excellence-Cluster Languages of Emotions my group and I have just recently completed a large, multidisciplinary project to further our understanding of alexithymia and other forms of an individuals unability to express emotions.

Description My work has a focus on the neurocognitive basis of psychopathological phenomena. Using neuropsychological, psychophysiological, and brain imaging techniques, we develop models of cognitive and affective functions and their disturbances, e.g. procedural learning deficits in obsessive-compulsive disorder or volitional deficits in schizophrenic disorders. Currently, we also work on the neuronal implementation of action monitoring and control. We have excellent lab facilities on campus Adlershof and several collaborations with research groups at the Charité.

Addressing principle questions of cortico-centric versus centrencephalic concepts, past and ongoing studies aim to identify basal ganglia and thalamic substrates of mental and motor actions and their coordination with related cortical operations. A further focus is the dependency between cognitive and motor performance under physiological and disease conditions, asking for behavioral determinants beyond conscious control.

Description The research focus of the group is on real-time context effects in language comprehension across the lifespan (in children, young, and older adults). We examine visual context effects as well as linguistic context effects. 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.

Description We 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.

Description My 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.

Description Motives and modulators of human decision making What drives us to trust someone we just met? Did we eat spaghetti for lunch because we saw our colleague eating it? Can we become happier when we are nicer to our neighbors? How does the content of our breakfast have anything to do with our social interactions throughout the day? Research from different disciplines such as economics, psychology and neuroscience have attempted to investigate the motives and modulators of human decision making. Our decisions can be flexibly modulated by the different experiences we have in our daily lives. These modulations can occur through our social networks, through the impact of our own behavior on the social environment, but also simply by the food we have eaten. My research aim is to shed light on the psychological, neural and metabolic motives and modulators of human decision making.

For that we cooperate with neurocognitive research groups focusing on perceptual decision making.

Research area Neuroscience of language and pragmatics: aphasia, neuropragmatics, language and action, language and emotion, neurocombinatorics, language perception and comprehension (MEG-EEG), meaning comprehension
Description My 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.

Description In my group we work interdisciplinary linking psychiatry, cognitive neuroscience, psychology and philosophy. Our main methods are neuroimaging and philosophical analyses. I welcome Ph.D. students who want to do imaging work/computational psychiatry and philosophers who want to integrate neuroscience into their philosophical work. I can offer expertise in psychopathology, neuroimaging and philosophy of mind. I am particulary interested in the interdisciplinary topics of volition, intention and agency, emotions, the self, social cognition, unconscious motivations and neuroethics.

Research area Brain disorders and mental dysfunction; Stress; Social cognition
Description One focus of our research is the investigation of the connections between mental illnesses and stress. We are particularly interested in changes in biological stress regulation systems, such as the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis and the autonomic nervous system. In several projects we investigate the connections between cognition (e. g. memory function) and various stress hormones. In addition, we try to better understand the relationship between stress and physical symptoms in mental illness.

Current status Faculty member
Research area Decision making; animal models in neurology and psychiatry; automated animal behaviour diagnostics
Description I am an animal physiologist and professor for cognitive neurobiology at Humboldt-Universität. We perform behavioural diagnostics with animal models for neurology and psychiatry (see also berlinmouseclinic.org and neurocure.de) with a focus on developing novel technical methods for automated animal behaviour research with a team of about 10 engineers. A second interest is animal decision making leading to non-rational choice using nectar-feeding bats as e.g. in Nachev N et al. and Winter Y, Fisher’s law and the cognition-mediated evolution of low-quality nectar. Science, in press (state: 2016).
