JURE 2015 conference in Cyprus Welcome to my homepage!

At the heart of my academic interest lies the field of Neuroscience and Education, which aims to uncover mechanisms of learning and instruction from a neuroscientific perspective. My own research focuses on questions such as how the human brain represents numerical information – for instance symbolic and non-symbolic numerical quantities – over developmental time and how individual differences in the neural correlates associated with numerical processing map onto mathematical achievement. In order to pursue these goals I use a variety of neuroscientific methods such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), Electroencephalography (EEG) and transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS).

SIG22 - Neuroscience and Education

The SIG brings together researchers from the fields of educational research, cognitive (and developmental) psychology and (cognitive) neuroscience as well as interdisciplinary people with training in each of these fields, all of which investigate human learning and development. Taking interdisciplinarity as a basic principle, the SIG conceives the relation between educational research and neuroscience as a two-way street with rich bi-directional and reciprocal interactions between educational research and (cognitive) neuroscience.

JURE

JURE (JUnior REsearchers) is a network of EARLI, dedicated to the interests of all junior researchers in  the field of learning and instruction. "Junior researcher" includes master and PhD students, as well as graduates who have received their doctorate within the last two years.

Wir beschäftigen uns mit den kognitiven und neuronalen Prozessen beim erfolgreichen Erwerb von Wissen und mit Möglichkeiten der Optimierung des Lernerfolgs. In der Forschung werden diese Themen im Rahmen des interdisziplinären Forschungsfelds „Educational Neuroscience“ sowohl mit behavioralen als auch kognitiv-neurowissenschaftlichen Methoden untersucht. In der Lehre orientieren wir uns am Angebot-Nutzungs-Modell der Unterrichtswirksamkeit und thematisieren erfolgreiches Lernen als Resultat des komplexen Zusammenspiels von Expertise der Lehrperson, Instruktionsqualität, Lernvoraussetzungen, Lernprozess und Kontextbedingungen.
