Title of PhD: Temporal Characteristics of Audiovisual Integration
Supervisors: Dr Massimiliano Di Luca, Professor Uta Noppeney
Ninja Katja Horr is undertaking her doctoral research into the temporal characteristics of audiovisual perception. Using psychophysics, computational modeling and EEG she investigates how the brain integrates information from different perceptual streams and accumulates those over time.

Ninja Katja Horr has conducted her undergraduate studies in Psychology at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. She received her Masters Degree in Neural and Behavioural Sciences from the International Max Planck Research School in Tuebingen, Germany. In Tuebingen she has worked under the supervision of Dr Kirsten Volz and Professor Christoph Braun in the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience investigating temporal dynamics of intuitive judgements with MEG. She furthermore has worked in the research group of Professor Boris Kotchoubey at the Institute for Medical Psychology and Behavioural Neurobiology on the development of an EEG-based paradigm to assess cognitive functions in low- and non-responsive patients.
Ninja Katja Horr’s research interests focus on neural mechanism of human perception. She is interested in the question of how the brain is able to create a coherent representation of the world from multiple on the first glance unconnected sensory input signals, especially the role of temporal information in this integration process.
