Module II
Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience

This module teaches the scientific basis of psychology, social and affective neuroscience. The areas of scientific enquiry covered in this module include psychology, social cognition, empathy, self-other discrimination, plasticity of “Theory of Mind”, and the brain’s default network. Another important aspect of this module is the analysis of the causes underlying psychopathologies of social cognition, early child development and culture, and the investigation of memory processes that allow us to function in the future.

Dr Roland Benoit

Research in the Adaptive Memory Group seeks to understand the neural and cognitive mechanisms that operate on our memories of the past to help us live in the future. [more]

Prof. Christian Doeller

Our overarching goal is to crack the cognitive code by identifying the key processing principles of the brain enabling human thinking. The broad mission of our Department is reflected in a wide variety of research areas in cognitive neuroscience, including spatial navigation, memory, time processing, learning and decision making, knowledge acquisition, and perception; and translational research on population coding in the hippocampal-entorhinal system, cognitive enhancement and Alzheimer’s disease. [more]

Dr Mona Garvert

Our group uses behavioural, computational and neuroimaging methods to understand neural codes underlying complex human behaviour. We are particularly interested in how the brain extracts and stores regularities from our experiences in order to facilitate decision making in novel situations. [more]

Prof. Kristina Musholt

My research is located at the intersection of philosophy and the cognitive sciences. [more]

PD Dr Julia Sacher

EGG-Lab Julia is a psychiatrist and neuroscientist interested in how hormones impact brain and behavior in health and disease. Our group uses apply multimodal neuroimaging techniques (PET & fMRI) to study changes in neurochemistry and neural activity in the female brain and how they relate to emotion and mood. [more]

Prof. Matthias Schroeter, M.A.

Recently, one of the most exciting research areas has been defined: Cognitive neuropsychiatry. This framework aims to explain clinical characteristics of neuropsychiatric disorders in terms of deficits to normal cognitive mechanisms and to link these deficits to brain structures. [more]
