Alex Reichenbach, PhDProfessor for Psychology in Computer Science

I am a cognitive neuroscientist driven by the question
How is the human brain processing sensory information for the control of voluntary movements?... some related questions: How and where is attention influencing these processes? What is the relationship to conscious perception of the same information? ... and the relevance of these processes to: Technical applications (e.g., human- and brain-computer interfaces, tele-operation systems, computer-aided diagnostics & rehabilitation) Disorders of the central nervous system (e.g., schizophrenia and optic ataxia)
Einen allgemeinverständlichen Artikel über meine Arbeit in London (2011-2014) finden Sie hier. Dort erkläre ich zwei spezielle Themen zur Verarbeitung visueller Informationen für die Bewegungssteuerung.
Einen allgemeinverständlichen Artikel über meine Doktorarbeit (2007-2010) finden Sie hier. Dort erläutere ich einige Grundlagen der neurowissenschaftlichen Sensomotorik Forschung und ihrer Methoden.
Einen allgemeinverständlichen Artikel über die Arbeit meines medizinischen Doktoranden David Mehler (2013) finden Sie hier. Dort beschreibt er einen Beitrag der neurowissenschaftlichen Grundlagenforschung zur Rehabilitationsmedizin.
