The Sensorimotor Group (SMG), headed by Prof. Dr. Alexander Gail is closely affiliated with the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience and the Bernstein Focus for Neurotechnology. Research in the SMG is aimed at understanding the neural basis of sensorimotor transformations, i.e. the cortical mechanisms underlying the planning of voluntary movements.
Decision and Awareness Group
The Decision and Awareness Group (DAG), headed by Dr. Igor Kagan is closely affiliated with the Department of Cognitive Neurology (Prof. Melanie WIlke) at the Medical School. Research in the DAG is focused on neural mechanisms of active perception, decision making and goal-directed actions.
