Researchers at the subinstitute "Cognitive Neuroscience" (INM-3) investigate the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive (dys-)function in healthy subjects and patients suffering from neurological disorders. Functional imaging and electrophysiological methods are combined with computational approaches. The successful candidate will be part of the "Cognitive Neurophysiology" group under the supervision of Dr. Kathrin Ohla. The group investigates the mechanisms of gustatory neuronal processing and associated perception and behavior.
