Research focus
One of my primary research goals is to understand the basic principles underlying hemispheric lateralization. I address this question using multimodal imaging techniques, in particular magnetic resonance imaging, aiming at characterizing the principles of hemispheric lateralization in terms of asymmetries in brain connectivity. In our interdisciplinary research team, we further develop methods to improve the quality of the data acquisition, to assess the reliability of imaging data, to integrate different imaging modalities, and to advance data analysis techniques. These methods are applied in various research projects in cognitive and clinical neuroscience, for instance in the field of imaging genetics and in multicenter studies on psychiatric disorders.
