Portfolio Prof. Dr. Hartmut Leuthold
I am primarily interested in the brain processes underlying perception, action, thinking and language. To this end, I usually employ an experimental, cognitive psychophysiological approach, which combines behavioural measures with the recording of event-related brain potentials (ERPs).
Currently, my research focuses on
the role of cognitive control in perception-action interaction,
the elementary mechanisms contributing to language comprehension and their modulation by the discourse context, and on
social and affective information processing.
