Dr. Cindy Eckart

PostDoctoral Researcher and Teaching Coordinator

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

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).
