The TNM-Lab combines multidisciplinary fields from speech science, social, cognitive and clinical psychology with experimental neurosciences. Research of the TNM-Lab is focused on:

  1. action & perception
  2. multisensory integration
  3. functional (dys-)connectivity
  4. psychotherapy, intervention and neural plasticity 
  5. social neuroscience
  6. gesture & language

All research areas are highly intertwined and founded projects are usually connected to more than one topic (see figure below). The main connecting goal is the translation of basic research from experimental psychology and neuroimaging to clinical investigations in patients with mental disorders, in particular schizophrenia and anxiety disorders.
