Dr. Ursula Budnik

PostDoctoral Researcher

Currently, I am involved in a project investigating long-term effects after early traumatic brain injury (TBI). I am trained in neuropsychological tests and clinical surveys. I am very interested in investigation of brain plasticity after injury. My previous research focuses on visuo-motor, visual and tactile processing in the cortex and in subcortical areas in healthy adults, children and brain damaged patients. I am also working on functional mapping of converging multisensory nodes in the human brain. Previously, I used functional brain imaging (7T, 3T, 1.5T), psychophysics, mapping, attention and subliminar priming paradigms.

Dr. Cindy Eckart

PostDoctoral Researcher and Teaching Coordinator

-- currently on parental leave --

Teaching project: My primary teaching interest focuses on the implementation of E-Learning modules (e.g. Screencasts, E-assessments) to improve undergraduate education in fundamental biopsychology. In parallel, we develop practical implementations and clinical case discussions to make biopsychological basics more vivid and memorable during the actual lecture time.
Research interest: My main interest in research concerns the dopaminergic and cholinergic modulation of cognitive functions (i.e. working memory, cognitive flexibility/stability) and corresponding brain oscillation patterns. So far, I focused on pharmacological stimulation studies in the EEG and MEG; however, in my future work I plan to include genetic analyses, as well.

My research focuses on predictive coding during language processing, which I investigate using MEG. I am particularly interested in the oscillatory signals underlying predictions and prediction errors, as well as in the time course of interactions between higher- and lower-order language regions during predictive processes.


Dr. Benjamin Gagl

PostDoctoral Researcher

Neuro-cognitive processes during reading and visual word recognition in beginning, dyslexic and adult readers. My previous research focused on phenomena best investigated by eye movement recordings like the optimal viewing position effect, parafoveal pre-processing and reading in natural contexts. My present research focuses on the neuro-cognitive processes underlying efficient reading which combines M/EEG and fMRI measurement with computational modeling.

Kirsten Hilger

PhD Student

My primary research interest focuses on the neurobiological bases of individual differences in intelligence. By using graph theoretical methods on human fMRI data, I study how organizational principles of the brain's functional network contribute to intelligence. Furthermore, I am interested in Predictive Coding theories and their relations to human intelligence.

Dr. Sebastian Korinth

PostDoctoral Researcher

-- currently on parental leave --

I am interested in finding sources for individual differences in silent reading skill. The focus of my work lies in research on visual processing capacities as one possible determinant of reading skill variance. The methods applied in this context are eye tracking, electroencephalography (EEG) and more recently also functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

Dr. Lena Rademacher

PostDoctoral Researcher

My research focuses on the dopamine system and on neural correlates of social reward processing and social emotions. My primary interests are in understanding disturbed processes in psychiatric disorders. Currently, I focus on the relationship between dopaminergic activity, psychological flexibility, and resilience to stress.

Dr. Kai Ueltzhöffer

PostDocotral Researcher

By combining computational theories of brain function with state-of-the-art deep learning methods, I’m building explicit models of cognitive processes and neural dynamics during the performance of complex tasks, allowing direct experimental tests of the underlying computational hypotheses using behavioral and neuroimaging data. Furthermore, I’m using the same approach to build artificial intelligence agents, testing the resulting dynamics in terms of action, perception and learning in complex, simulated environments. On the theoretical side, I’m interested in how much of cognition, behavior and the underlying neural dynamics can be derived from first principles, e.g. in terms of the properties required by complex, dynamic systems to sustain themselves in changing environments. On the practical side, I’m trying to understand psychiatric syndromes in computational terms, e.g. as pathological inference and learning in patients’ generative models of the world.
