GENERAL OVERVIEW

My interdisciplinary research focuses on normal as well as disturbed functioning of the human social brain, with a special interest in human affiliation, compassion, caregiving and attachment style. I use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and electro-encephalography (EEG), combined with psychological questionnaires and behavioral assessment as main research methods. My participants are adults, adolescents as well as children, both female and male.
