I am interested in how the auditory and motor systems interact and influence each other, especially, how sound influences motor learning and memory formation, and what neuronal mechanisms and plastic changes underlie those processes. In particular, I am interested in how the gained knowledge could be used to treat disorders related to the motor and auditory systems, such as in the case of stroke, speech disorders, or schizophrenia.
