Neural and Environmental Rhythms

The Max Planck Research Group "Neural and Environmental Rhythms" explores how synchrony between brain rhythms and environmental rhythms shapes our perception of the world. We use psychophysics, M/EEG, and noninvasive brain stimulation to do this. 

We're based in Frankfurt at the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics. 



Molly is freshly back from TRF2 in Querétaro, Mexico and SFN in Chicago. Both were a blast and my brain is full of good science. 

Matt Moore and Vera Komeyer arrived in October! Our group is now complete for the time being. 

Welcome to the group: Olivia Wen, Ece Kaya, Nicole Huizinga, and Kristin Weineck! It really feels a bit like the first day of school. 

Job openingWe're hiring an admin assistant to three research groups at the MPI for Empirical Aesthetics in Frankfurt. Get in touch if you have questions. 

I got so busy I forgot to announce a new paper in Current Biology with the one and only Juan Chen at the helm (I was mostly there for moral support). 


We'll keep summaries of ongoing research projects here. Coming soon.
