NoCo-Lab

Neurobiology of Cognition Laboratory

Das NoCo-Lab erforscht die neurobiologischen Grundlagen von kognitiven Leistungen

Wir untersuchen beispielsweise Entscheidungsprozesse, das Planen von Handlungen, die Selbstwahrnehmung, oder das Arbeitsgedächtnis. Wir wollen zudem verstehen wie neuro-psychiatrische Erkrankungen und Altern diese kognitiven Leistungen verändern und unser Wissen nutzbar machen.

Unsere Untersuchungsmethoden umfassen Verhaltensexperimente am Computer, einschließlich der Messung von Augen- und Handbewegungen. Bildgebende Untersuchung (z.B. mittels fMRT) ermöglichen es uns, die neuronalen Grundlagen kognitiver Leistungen im menschlichen Gehirn „sichtbar“ zu machen.

The NoCo-Lab investigates the neurobiological basis of cognition

Our research focuses on processes such as decision-making, the planning of actions, self-perception, or working memory. We further want to understand how neuro-psychiatric diseases and aging affect these cognitive processes and to transfer our knowledge into practical applications.

The research methods of our group entail behavioral experiments, including the measurement of eye and hand movements. Brain imaging (e.g. fMRI) further enable us to uncover the neural basis of cognitive performance in the human brain.
