Friederike Schlaghecken



I'm interested in how our brains respond - and adjust - to our environment. I'm particularly interested in the automaticity of so-called 'control' processes, and in the control of so-called 'automatic' processes, in the links between perception and action, inhibitory motor control processes, early vision, and subliminal perception, and in individual differences and the lifespan development of these processes.

I welcome PhD applications in any of these areas - if you're interested, just get in touch!
