Research interests

How does empathy develop in children and which neuronal changes accompany it? This developmental neuroscientific question is the focus of my dissertation project. I am concerned with the development and plasticity of empathy ability in four- to six-year-olds and use electroencephalographic (EEG) measurement methods to record neural correlates. With respect to child empathy behavior, my focus is on comparing behavioral changes with event-related potentials (ECPs) such as the P1, N170 or P3 component and EEG oscillations.
Furthermore, I am interested in the neural processing of faces in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Here, I am investigating whether this group of patients has a global deficit in face recognition, or whether attentional guidance significantly affects this process.
