His research is about how thoughts can be read and predicted from brain activity. Other areas of research include consciousness, intention and freedom of will.
His work covers not only technical feasibility, but also the ethical limits of “Neurotechnology”.
Prof. Dr. Ursula Dicke
Professor of behavioral physiology and functional neuroanatomy at the Brain Research Institute of the University of Bremen, Germany.
His research focuses are: affective-emotional behavior and the basic neuronal principles of aggressive behavior in humans and animals; processes of perception, their implementation in actions and learning habits, as well as the extent to which the senses interact in their creation.
