Main Research Topics in Our Lab
Our research group studies the brain bases of higher cognitive functions such as language, working memory, cognitive control, goal-directed behavior. To this end, we use modern brain imaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging, EEG, or magnetoencephalography. Our work aims at understanding basic mechanisms of cognition, but also individual differences in cognitive abilities, such as general intelligence or working memory capacity.
Cognitive Stability and Cognitive Flexibility
working memory, working memory capacity, working memory precision
dopaminergic control of stability vs. flexibility
predictive coding during language processing (L-POP project funded by ERC)
reading and reading disorders
Neurobiological Mechanisms underlying Individual Differences
brain bases of intelligence
effects of personality (esp. anxiety) on executive cognitive control
individual differences in working memory capacity
genes, brain, and behavior
neurocognitive development of reading, attention, executive control
