In August 2016 I finished my Master of Science in Cognitive and Integrative Systems Neuroscience at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy in Marburg. In my thesis I worked in the project PROTECT-AD and analyzed the connectivity between the neural correlates during fear extinction. In my PhD I am focusing on simultaneous EEG-fMRI investigations targeting the neural correlates of fear conditioning, fear extinction and extinction recall in highly anxious people and patients with anxiety disorders. Furthermore, I am interested in effective connectivity analyses regarding audiovisual integration of gestures and language in patients with schizophrenia.
