Prof. Daniel Kaiser
I'm a trained psychologist and cognitive neuroscientist and currently Professor for Neural Computation at JLU Gießen. I'm generally interested in naturalistic vision: I want to understand how we perceive the world around us in typical everyday situations. Outside of the lab, I enjoy cycling and eating unhealthy vegetarian food. Please view the Research page (under construction) for the main research directions I'm currently pursuing.
Sanjeev is a postdoc at JLU Gießen, funded by the cluster project "The Adaptive Mind". He holds B.Tech and M.Tech degrees in Biomedical Engineering and did his PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at BCBL San Sebastian. His research interests include predictive processing, neuroimaging (EEG/MEG/fMRI), MVPA, and deep learning. He also supports the project's data hub infrastructure. When not at work, he spends time with his family, roams around green parks and cooks indian food. For more, please visit his personal website.
Matt is a PhD student in the lab. He completed his Masters and Undergraduate degrees in Psychology at the University of Lincoln. After, he worked in London for a few years before returning to academia to pursue his interest in visual perception. In his PhD project, he investigates the role of real-world structure in cortical scene processing. Outside of the lab, he enjoys spending time with his friends and partner, visiting museums, and playing overly complex board games.
Lixiang is a PhD student based at Freie Universität Berlin and co-supervised by Radoslaw Cichy. Lixiang is funded by the Chinese Scholarship Counil (CSC). In his PhD work, he focuses on the spatiotemporal dynamics of scene representations in the brain, using M/EEG and fMRI techniques. Before joining the lab, Lixiang obtained his master’s degree from South China Normal University in Guangzhou.
Rico is a PhD student at Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen. He obtained his Masters degree in Psychology at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Prior to starting his PhD, he worked at the Department of Biological Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Jena, where he investigated the spatiotemporal dynamics of facial identity processing. He focuses on applying multivariate and machine-learning-based analysis techniques to EEG and fMRI data to examine how our brain represents mental states.
Gongting is a PhD student at Freie Universität Berlin and co-supervised by Radoslaw Cichy. He graduated from East China Normal University and joined the lab in October 2021. In his PhD project, he will combine neuroimaging methods (e.g., fMRI and MEG) and deep neural networks to explore perceptual processing mechanisms . He is also interested in mathematical modeling and animal studies. Outside of the lab, he likes to ride a bike to explore the city, watch movies and play games (Total War, Call of Duty, Civilization, etc.).
Marius is a student assistant in the lab, where he supports various EEG projects. After completing his BSc in economics, he is now studying data science at Justus-Liebig-University Gießen. Marius is passionate about sports and a keen Eintracht Frankfurt supporter. In his free time, he also collects records and particularly enjoys participating in psychological studies.
