SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:
The title of a textbook I worked with during my studies encapsulates my field of interest in the best possible manner: 'Neuroscience. From the Molecule to Cognition'. I am striving to better understand the functioning of the human brain, as I have always been immensely amazed by the human's complex cognitive abilities.
So the chance to enhance my understanding of the brain's functioning on a molecular respectively physiological, functional level – and the promising prospect of some day being able to make accurate predictions about it – is more than thrilling to me.
Furthermore, I intend to first deepen my knowledge about the molecular/cellular fundamentals and then, in a second step, focus on complex cognitive problems.
