    2) Connectivity during natural reading in ecologically valid settings (fixation-related BOLD)
  • Eva Jonas:
    1) Experiencing threat: Social-cognitive, neural, affective, and motivational perspectives
    2) Managing threat: Social-cognitive, neural, affective, and motivational perspectives
  • Wolfgang Klimesch:
    1)Temporal attention, alpha phase and slow oscillations
    2) Memory capacity and the inhibition of distracting information
  • Martin Kronbichler:
    1) Examining brain connectivity abnormalities in mental disorders
    2) Brain connectvity and individual differences in cognitive abilities
  • Josef Perner:
    1) Brain imaging counterfactual thinking and emotions
    2) Tracking brain processes underlying identity statements and theory of mind
  • Belinda Pletzer:
    1) Sex hormone influences on brain connectivity and higher cognitive functions
    2) Sex hormone influences on inter-hemispheric connectivity and global-local processing
  • Manuel Schabus:
    1) Consolidation of motor skills during sleep
    2) Sleep and residual cognitive processing in disorders of consciousness
  • Eugen Trinka:
