Kurzinfo

Einen Schwerpunkt meiner aktuellen Forschung bilden (i) das Sehen während Augenbewegungen und (i) die multisensorische Enkodierung von Eigenbewegungsinformation bei Primaten. Ziel beider Forschungsrichtungen ist ein verbessertes Verständnis der neuronalen Repräsentation von Raum und Bewegung im menschlichen Gehirn.

In unseren Studien kombinieren wir neurophysiologische Ableitungen am Tiermodell mit behavioralen und bildgebenden Untersuchungen am Menschen. Zudem haben wir vor kurzem Zusammenarbeiten mit Kliniken des UKGM begonnen, um spezifische Störungen der Verarbeitung von Raum- und Bewegungsinformation bei neurologischen und psychiatrischen Patienten zu untersuchen.
