Dr. Ullsperger is a researcher at both the Max Planck Institute in Cologne, Germany and the Donders Institute for Brain at Radboud University Nijmegen in The Netherlands. Trained as a physician, Markus Ullsperger decided early in his career to focus on research in cognitive neurosciences. He did his PhD on EEG correlates of inhibitory processes in memory. Since about 2000, he has focused on performance monitoring, cognitive control and flexible, adaptive behavior.
To this end, he has made use of fMRI, EEG, genetics and pharmacology in healthy participants and neurological as well as psychiatric patients.
Dr. Debener is a Professor and Researcher at the Biomagnetic Center in the Department of Neurology at University Hospital in Jena, Germany. Stefan Debener did his PhD in Psychology on EEG predictors of depression. During his post-doc with Andreas Engel he became interested in neuronal oscillations and single-trial analyses. In 2004 he started a collaboration with the Swartz Center for
Computational Neurosciences (UCSD) and since then has been working on the validation and application of independent component analysis, which he has used to advance as different fields as EEG-fMRI integration, the analysis of auditory evoked potentials from cochlear implant users, and multisensory processing.
well as research in the field of multisensory processing.show more
