Using various neuroscientific methods, we investigate the processing and selection of spatial information in the human brain.
Our brain constantly receives numerous sensory signals. This requires a selection of currently relevant stimuli and a suppression of distracting stimuli.
From intention to action: How do actions arise in the (healthy) brain? How are the underlying cognitive and motor processes disturbed by diseases?
The vast majority of motor actions is the result of a complex interplay of various brain regions. In the past decades, brain regions involved in movement generation have been intensively investigated in both animal models as well as in humans.
The focus of the study group is the research field of social cognition, which assembles all cognitive processes, which are relevant for the interaction and communication between human beings.
How does stroke influence sensorimotor networks in the human brain? – This is the major question driving our research activities.
