1) Conceptualizing exposure therapy as dynamic feedback system

We aim at better understanding and optimizing exposure therapy. Specifically, we investigate psychological, peripheral physiological and neuroimaging measures to computationally model exposure therapy as closed-loop feedback systems.

2) Real-time fMRI Neurofeedback

We develop new brain imaging methods and apply them to clinical conditions. Specifically, we use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) as a non-invasive therapeutic tool. This can be achieved by using real-time fMRI and neurofeedback of brain signals to teach participants and patients to self-regulate their brain activity. With our work, we aim to translate this cutting-edge technology to the clinics to benefit patients.

3) Machine-learning with psychological data

Generally, machine-learning techniques are powerful tools for data analysis. Particularly in psychology, where heterogeneous, multimodal data are ubiquitous. We offer the chance to dive into this hot topic and to gain hands-on experience with real world machine-learning applications.
