Motor Cognition

About

From intention to action: How do actions arise in the (healthy) brain?
How are the underlying cognitive and motor processes disturbed by diseases?

The Motor Cognition group investigates the neural mechanisms and concepts (e.g., body schema) underlying disorders of motor cognition, particularly apraxia. In addition to deficits in action control, we investigate the mechanisms and disturbances of imitation, pantomime and tool use. For this purpose, we use methods of structural (e.g., statistical lesion analyses) and functional (e.g., connectivity analyses) imaging in healthy subjects and neurological patients. Furthermore, we use non-invasive neuromodulation techniques (TMS, tDCS) to develop new therapies for motor cognitive disorders.
