September 25, 2023: Congratulations to Agata Patyczek and Elias Reinwarth who successfully (with distinction!) defended their Master theses on fMRI gradients and acute (Agata) or chronic (Elias) stress. They’ll join us as PhD candidates next month.
September 1, 2023: Welcome to new group member Alex Kastrinogiannis, who’ll work in the 3DIL project.
July 19, 2023: We’re looking forward to starting a new BMBF project in September: “Objective and hybrid assessment of cognitive and fatigue-associated post-COVID symptoms with multimodal tools (EPSILON).” Together with Fraunhofer HHI (Berlin), the Clinic for Cognitive Neurology (Leipzig), and Charité (Berlin), we’ll combine immersive VR (cognitive measures) and wearables (vegetative measures) to characterize post-COVID symptoms.
April 3, 2023: We’re currently looking to fill a DFG-funded 3-year postdoc position (deadline: May 15, 2023). Details can be found here.
February 1, 2023: We started a new project on technology-supported motor rehabilitation in Rett Syndrome (TeMoRett), a rare neurodevelopmental disorder. TeMoRett is funded by the BMBF and a collaboration with clinical (Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin) and technical partners (Fraunhofer HHI). Among other things, we will contribute video-based assessments of a user’s cardiac activity and affective state.
November 23, 2022: In 2023, we will start a DFG-funded collaboration with the UK and Canada on using immersive VR for eyewitness identification in lineups (more details). We’ll officially announce a 3-year postdoc position (key features: eye tracking, interactive mobile immersive VR, face processing) in early 2023. Please feel free to already get in touch.
June 16, 2021: Stella Kunzendorf successfully defended her MD thesis on "The modulation of active information sampling across the cardiac cycle" at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Congratulations, Dr. Kunzendorf!
March 18, 2021: Deniz Kumral successfully defended her PhD thesis on "Variability in heart and brain activity across the adult lifespan" at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Congratulations, Dr. Kumral!
