Research focus

Research of my group primarily focuses on the relationship between body movement and cognition with a particular interest in their  rhythmic interactions. We use human non-invasive recordings from electro- and magnetoencephalography (EEG, MEG) as well as invasive human (ECoG) and animal multi-electrode recordings in combination with eye- and motion tracking. Considering the role of oscillatory brain activity in perception, one focus lies on investigating neuronal oscillations during natural behavior while probing perceptual mechanisms.
