Dr. Edna Cieslik-Köchling

Postdoctoral Researcher

Research topic:

  • Multimodal modeling of attention and executive motor control in health and psychiatric diseases

Methodological topics:

  • fMRI
  • ALE-meta analyses
  • Resting State
  • meta-analytic connectivity modeling (MACM)
  • Co-activation based parcellation

The main focus of my research is the investigation of attention and executive motor control in healthy subjects and possible deficits in psychiatric patients. I am particularly interested in the influence of cognitive control processes on motor behavior and the interactions of the underlying neural networks. I therefore use task-based fMRI and meta-analyses to identify those regions associated with specific cognitive processes as well as multimodal connectivity approaches such as resting state and meta-analytic connectivity modeling to investigate the interactions within these neural networks. Moreover, potential dysfunctions within these networks are investigated in patients with schizophrenia.
