Neuropsychology of Action


About us ...

The Hertie Research Group "Neuropsychology of Action" is dedicated to investigations of human action control. Our work combines neuropsychological examinations of brain-damaged patients with state-of-the-art measurement and investigation techniques (functional neuroimaging; transcranial magnetic stimulation; motion and eye tracking systems).

All projects are related to three neuropsychological disorders: optic ataxia, visual agnosia, and apraxia. Investigating the occurrence, behavioural consequences, and varieties of these disorders. We hope to advance our models of human action control on the one hand and contribute to therapeutic approaches on the other hand.
