Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Education History:

M.S., Psychology, Humboldt-University of Berlin, Germany
B.S., Psychology, Ruprecht-Karls University of Heidelberg, Germany

Research Interests:

During her Ph.D. studies, Anne focused on exploring the neural correlates of emotional working memory by using fMRI, rTMS and tDCS. In addition, she investigated the effects of Oxytocin on emotional social memory.
Anne joined the lab in September 2013 as a postdoctoral fellow. Her current work aims to provide further understanding of the underlying mechanisms of rTMS in the treatment of depression. She is furthermore interested in assessing state-dependent brain stimulation effects in order to optimize the antidepressant efficacy of rTMS.
