Fields of knowledge: Psychologie

Neurobiological and psychological research is often methodologically inadequate and requires a scientific-theoretical - methodological examination. Neurobiological and psychological research results can only be adequately interpreted and innovative research approaches formulated on the basis of a methodologically sound foundation.   

Research combines theory of science, neurobiology and psychology. Current topics are: Diagnostics and therapy of reading disorders (dyslexia), neurobiological basics of vision, attention, consciousness and free will, diagnostics and therapy of performance losses after brain damage.    

Wrote 5 books and numerous essays on these topics.

What appears to us to be clear and unproblematic when viewed superficially often becomes a complex object of research in the light of methodological and empirical research, requiring a completely new perspective.
