Contact details

Dr Marion Brickwedde is an expert in non-invasive sensory stimulation and brain computer interfaces. She uses brain imaging techniques (EEG, MEG, OPM) to research neuronal oscillations and their role for information processing and neural plasticity in humans.  


  • BSc Psychology, University of Trier, Germany
  • MSc Psychology, University of Trier, Germany
  • PhD Neuroscience, University of Bochum, Germany


Marion Brickwedde currently works in the neuronal oscillations group of Ole Jensen. Her research interest lies in the application of brain-computer interfaces to enhance basic knowledge about the functional role of neuronal oscillations. At the moment she is developing an MEG- and OPM- based brain computer interface tracking selective attention in real-time.

Before she joined the neuronal oscillations group, she worked at the Cognitive Neurophysiology Lab with Ali Mazaheri, researching cross-modal attention and memory using EEG.

Marion Brickwedde obtained her PhD at the Ruhr-University of Bochum, Germany under supervision of Hubert Dinse, with whom she researched how modulation of neuronal oscillations via neurofeedback alters perceptual learning.
