Research Interests

My research focuses on the use of magnetoencephalography in cognitive neuroscience with special focus on language processing. Consequently, I am interested in all methodological developments which improve the localization of brain activity in both respects spatial accuracy and temporal evolution. The latter is especially important for the modeling of functional networks of the brain. Measures of functional connectivity and information transfer rely on the correctness of the time courses assigned to brain regions.

Available PhD projects

  • Optimized identification of brain regions for brain network analyses
  • Joint supervision with Angela Friederici, Erich Schröger, Marc Schönwiesner for MEG studies on language processing, music processing or general auditory processing.
