Degree: Diploma in psychology

Research Topics:

Hemispherical differences related to aging and to other personality differences

My main research focus is the investigation of functional and structural hemispherical differences by doing neuropsychological assessments and behavioural and (functional) magnetic resonance imaging ((f)MRI) experiments. Within these experiments I am not only investigating young and older healthy adults, but in addition different patients groups, like epileptic patients, neglect patients or patients with Morbus Parkinson. During the experimental investigations I mainly focus on attention and memory functions.

Research Methods:

  • Neuropsychological investigation
  • (f)MRI
