Bettina Sorger, PhD
Department of Cognitive Neuroscience, Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience
During her time as a PhD student and postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Bettina Sorger has implemented clinical applications of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), developed BCIs based on real-time fMRI and has applied fMRI-based communication in non-responsive patients. Since taking a position at Maastricht University in 2011, she is heading the local hemodynamic BCI research group and has worked in several fields of fundamental and clinical neuroscience with a particular focus on extending fMRI-based communication BCIs to various sensory modalities (visual, auditory, and tactile) and transferring these methods to mobile fNIRS. Another focus of her current research is the implementation of hemodynamic brain signals for neurofeedback (therapy).
