Our research group investigates the neuronal dynamics of selective information processing and the role of attention in the building of memory and retrieval of previously learned information.
With high density electrode array electroencephalographic recordings (EEG) we investigate the dynamics of neuronal binding, and the formation and use-dependent plasticity of cortical networks, i.e. information processing and integration across different cortical brain structures.
Within the cluster collaborations are established with the groups of Schröger, Jescheniak (University Leipzig) and Friederici (Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences). Future collaborations with the Paul-Flechsig-Insitute and the Carl Ludwig Institute will focus on investigating synaptic strengthening of neural networks and mechanisms of self regulation.
