Our research is focused on learning and memory, i.e. how brain and behavior change as a function of experience. We examine these questions both in healthy participants and in selected patient groups. The role of sleep in memory formation is of particular interest. We use methods such as electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The results of our basic research are used to implement learning-based concepts for treatment and rehabilitation of various disorders of the nervous system, such as stroke, ALS, or adiposity.
