Assistant Professor, Principal Investigator

Head of Emmy Noether Group "The Developing Engram"

Chair of Neuopsychology, Institute of Psychology, University of Freiburg

Monika Schönauer wants to gain a better understanding of how our brains form lasting memories. She addresses this question by studying memory consolidation, the processes occurring after encoding which support long-term memory storage. Her main research interest is how reactivation – via active memory rehearsal in wakefulness or by covert memory processing during sleep – strengthens and stabilizes new memory representations.


Deniz Kumral deniz_crop.png

Postdoctoral Researcher

Deniz is interested in sleep, aging, and plasticity. Her current research focuses on how alterations in sleep would affect the body (e.g., the heart), brain, and cognition (i.e., memory and emotional processing).



Nora Roüast Nora_crop.jpg

Postdoctoral Researcher

Nora is interested in what shapes our memories. She works on sleep and memory, proactive memory consolidation and interactions of memory and attention.



Philipp PaulusPhillipp Paulus -24 - sq.jpeg

Postdoctoral Researcher

Philipp is interested in how we use our memories of the past to prepare for the future. His topics of research are knowledge acquisition, semantic memory, autobiographical memory and cognitive computational neuroscience.                                                                                                                                                                                            Photo: (c) Annette Mueck/KTS

PhD Researcher

Katja is interested in how we build and flexibly use knowledge structures about our world.



Tobias Kraus tobi_crop.png

PhD Researcher

Tobias research topics are maladaptive memory consolidation, emotional memory and neuroimaging.
