HUM957: Human Brain & Cognition

The group develops its research within the framework of Cognitive Neuroscience and Experimental Psychology.

We employ different experimental methods to measure behavior (speed and accuracy of responses in different tasks) and brain activity employing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and electroencephalography (EEG).

Lines of research:

  • Brain and cognition in states with different activation levels (e.g. drowsiness and high-intensity exercise)
  • Effort and self-regulation
  • Neural coding of information across different contexts
  • Neural mechanisms of cognitive control and task preparation
  • Multivariate analyses (MVPA, RSA) of neuroimaging data
