Research Project Title: The role of attention in predictive visual motion processing Research Project Summary: Neural transmission in the brain causes processing delays. This is problematic when visually localizing moving objects, One way the brain might compensate for such delays is through prediction. This project will combine psychophysics, time-resolved EEG decoding, and functional MRI approaches to study predictive mechanisms in the human visual cortex. …

The influence of aging on the dynamics of performance monitoring and change-of-mind decisions Due to improvements in health care systems and medical care in most developed countries (such as Germany and Australia), the average life expectancy has risen well above 80 years in recent years. Aging, however, has several direct and indirect effects on cognitive functions, for example decision-making and cognitive …
Individual variability in decision-making and performance monitoring The evaluation of one’s own action errors has been shown to be dependent on the individuals’ appreciation thereof. Individual differences in the neural processing of errors can be linked to personality profiles related to the perception of errors, such as perfectionism. It is very likely, however, that the individual mind-sets and perfectionism profiles change …
