Welcome to the Laboratory for Cognitive Neuroscience

Department of Psychology & Interdisciplinary Center for Neuroscience, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany

Principle Investigator: Christian Fiebach

Our research group studies the brain bases of higher cognitive functions such as language, working memory, cognitive control, or intelligence, using modern brain imaging techniques. 

We are located at the Psychology Department of Goethe University, and we are part of the Interdisciplinary Center for Neuroscience Frankfurt (ICNF) as well as the Rhine Main Neuroscience Network (rmn2). We are also associated to Frankfurt's Center for Individual Development and Adaptive Education (IDeA) and closely collaborate with the Frankfurt Brain Imaging Center (BIC).
