I focus on Neuropsychology in my teaching. During the empirical practicum, I give students the opportunity to become familiar working with an Electroencephalogram (EEG) and to use it throughout the whole research process—from the development of a research question, through data collection and analysis, to the point of interpreting the data. In addition, I teach scientific work and writing in the BA psychology program.
My research focuses on the area of processing stimuli from food. I use event-related potentials from an EEG in order to assess “taste.” My main interest in this field is which parameters influence the processing and subjective assessment of food stimuli and whether we can modify our eating behavior through cognitive strategies. So far, the interaction between a neural correlate and actual eating behavior has not been sufficiently examined in food research. This knowledge can be useful for a wide variety of applications.
