Research topic:

  • Brain structure
  • Neuropsychology
  • Genetics

I am interested in the connection of higher cognitive functions and neuroanatomy as well as the influence of heritability. In my current project I am investigating cognition and emotion control. I want to ascertain if they are separable on a behavioural level, as well as on the brain level. I am using cortical thickness to analyse brain regions attributed to aspects of cognitive and emotion control. Further I want to explore whether the behaviour and the brain structure itself is heritable. For this research I am using the big data sample of the Human Connectome Project.
