Electroencephalography (EEG) is a way of measuring brain waves exhibited in cortical areas of the central nervous system. Several states as well as reaction sequences can thus be differentiated and connected to behavior of human beings.
Voltage-sensitive dye imaging (VSDI) enables visualization of ongoing brain dynamics giving access to the coordinated activation pattern of millions of neurons. Spatiotemporal patterns of activity play an essential role in memory consolidation - by maintaining specific internal representations of past experiences - and in feature binding through immediate interactions across activity triggered by current sensory events.
We capture human motion by tracking infrared markers with a 3D-camera-system, to examine processes that underlie motion planning, reveal otherwise covert movement structure, or uncover effects of simultaneous cognitive processing.
