Benjamin Straube - Keynote

Benjamin Straube - Keynote

Benjamin Straube is Professor for Translational Neuroimaging at the Philipps-University Marburg (Germany). His aim is to fill the need for translating basic research from experimental psychology and neuroimaging to clinical investigations in patients with mental disorders, in particular schizophrenia and anxiety disorders. In general, he is interested in predictive neural mechanisms in a multisensory environment as well as adaptive behavior reflected in learning, memory and neuro-functional plasticity (e.g., in context of psychotherapy). His research is focused on three overarching themes that are investigated in the Translational neuroimaging-lab in Marburg, namely 1) the neural correlates of action-perception circuits, 2) dysfunctional multisensory integration and 3) the aberrant functional connectivity as a general pathophysiological mechanism.
