Summary

Currently I am working as a Research Fellow on the Mirror Neuron Project which is funded by the "Wellcome Trust Project Grant (Kraskov and Lemon)". The main focus of my work is presently to analyse and interpret the oculomotor pattern of a monkey while participating in an interactive mirror task requiring action execution and action observation.

Currently I'm in Kazuhiko Seki's lab at the NCNP in Tokyo. I received my PhD in K-P Hoffmann's Lab @ the RUB, Germany. I investigated if and how the Superior Colliculus is involved in the generation and control of visually guided arm movements using electrical microstimulation. Next I've worked on the Mirror Neuron Project in R. Lemon's lab. Main focus of this work was to analyse the oculomotor pattern of monkeys while performing a mirror task requiring action execution and action observation.
