Our research primarily addresses the question of how cognitive brain functions such as attention govern information processing and routing within the brain to enable successful behavior. We are particularly interested in the neural codes involved in the prioritization of processing relevant over irrelevant information, and investigate these at both micro- and mesoscopic levels.
The institute is applying a variety of experimental techniques, among those extracellular single-cell recordings, intracortical electrical stimulation, electrocorticography (ECoG), and psychophysiology.
We are glad to work and perform research together with interested students. We, therefore, provide internships and final thesis projects for Bachelor and Master students.
If you are interested in working in our group, feel welcome to contact us (see contact information). We also offer PhD-student positions for persons with a master degree and interest in cognitive Neurophysiology.
