Main Focus

  • Cognition in complex environments
  • Interpretable Deep Learning for neuroscience
  • Recurrent neural networks as model of cognitive processes and neural data
  • Development of ecological valid, i.e. naturalistic research paradigms that incorporate multi-sensory stimuli (e.g. movies, immersive VR experiences) to trigger natural responses in behavior and in the brain
