Our studies focus on the neuronal and neurochemical markers underlying multisensory integration.


We use state-of-the-art methods including high-density electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). A particular focus of our research is the examination of oscillatory EEG activity, especially in the gamma-band (frequencies > 30 Hz). Gamma-band activity has been linked to perception and attention. Moreover, disturbed gamma-band activity may be related to specific symptoms observed in psychiatric disorders, such as cognitive deficits in schizophrenia. Our research advances our understanding of the neuronal mechanisms underlying multisensory integration in healthy and psychiatric populations.
