Our lab studies the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive functions such as working memory, language, cognitive control and decision making. To this end, we use non-invasive brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and EEG. We also investigate the neurobiological bases of individual differences in cognitive abilities and the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive development.

New paper: Brain Bases of Intelligence (Sept. 2013)

This new study by Ulrike Basten and former PostDoc Christine Stelzel, published in Intelligenceshows that an established hypothesis - i.e., that more intelligent people are neurally more efficient - is not true across all areas in the brain, but depends on which specific brain networks are examined.
