Profile

My research interests are in the field of cognition, and cognitive and clinical neuroscience. Areas of research include emotion, memory, language, attention, perception of faces and other social stimuli, cognition subsequent to brain injury, and cognitive aging. A focus of my research is the cognitive neuroscience of person recognition by faces, names and voices. My group and I over the past 20 years have been involved in a number of research programs that have been funded by the DFG, the BBSRC, and the Wellcome Trust. I am using research methods that tap into the area between brain and cognition, such as event-related brain potentials (ERP) and haemodynamic neuroimaging (fMRI), as well as psychological investigations of patients with focal brain lesions. A particular objective in this research is the integration of cognitive models with neurophysiological recordings. The combination of various research methods in this ongoing cross-disciplinary program has already provided us with a fuller understanding of the dynamics governing the cognitive and brain systems that mediate the recognition of complex social stimuli.
