The Communicative Brain group is funded by a Minerva Fast Track Fellowship, awarded by the Max Planck Gesellschaft (≈ 1 mil euros)
The goal of the Communicative Brain group is to understand how the brain integrates auditory and visual signals into a coherent message during multimodal, face-to-face interactions. The core theory we want to test is whether and how oscillatory neural activity plays a role in integrating these different sources of information within and between conversational partners.
We will investigate this using new cutting-edge techniques, including dual-EEG, MEG, rapid invisible frequency tagging, and detailed behavioural analyses of auditory and visual signals in interactive contexts.
