Research projects


Relationship between cognitive performance and body balance
We explore the interference of cognitive and emotional tasks on postural control, as assesed through measurements optainted from a force plate.

DFG Priority Program SPP 1772 "Human performance under multiple cognitive task requirements: From basic mechanisms to optimized task scheduling"

Interaction between cognitive and emotional processes
In my PhD-project, I focused on cognitive control mechanisms that operate in face of emotional information. The main goal is to unravel under which conditions cognitive control processes generalize across emotional domains.
