Due to my background in psychology, I am very interested in the behavioral neurosciences. I am intrigued by the question how disturbances in brain structure and function cause psychological disorders. Not only am I interested in the disordered brain and pathological conditions but also in the underlying basis of interindividual differences in intelligence, creativity, and personality. Another major field of interest of mine is synaptic plasticity and how we can exploit it for neurological rehabilitation after stroke or other brain injuries.
During my studies in Göttingen I want to expand my knowledge in other fields of the neurosciences and gain deeper insights in the molecular and cellular processes of the brain.
