In meiner Forschung interessiere ich mich dafür, wie Sinnesinformationen für die Raumwahrnehmung und die Ausführung zielgerichteter Bewegungen genutzt werden. Insbesondere untersuche ich Zeigebewegungen und sakkadische Augenbewegungen zu visuellen, taktilen, propriozeptiven und kinästhetischen Zielreizen.

Mein Ziel ist es, besser zu verstehen wie das menschliche Gehirn sensorische Informationen in Bewegungen transformiert. In diesem Kontext erforsche ich die Nutzung von Referenzsystemen für die Raumwahrnehmung und Bewegung und deren Abhängigkeit von der Sinnesmodalität und der Aufgabe. Daran anknüpfend erforsche ich die Interaktion von Aufmerksamkeit und Arbeitsgedächtnis mit sensomotorischen Prozessen.
