M.Sc. Charlotta Eick

Research Interest

My scientific interest includes the human cognition in general with a focus on visual processing. A goal is to get closer to comprehend how the brain processes input, from the simplest stimulus to a complex real-life surrounding. Understanding the resulting neural networks motivates and the versatility of specific brain regions fascinates me.

Hence my field on research covers the face network, the different processing of familiar and unfamiliar faces and pathological visual cortex organizations, eg in patients with albinism. I utilize non-invasive transcranial magnetic stimulation, electroencephalogram and the combination of both.
