About me

My scientific background is on functional and structural neuroimaging with the aim to link neuronal function and dysfunction to cognition and emotion. Within the project R8 -[CSPACE] I investigate how different brain areas interact during reasoning and planning tasks and how resulting activational patterns might predict subject performance. Furthermore by adding neuronal information to cognitive models on human planning and reasoning I aim to improve their accuracy and their applicability for instance in clinical settings.
