Katharina Rischer joined INSIDE as a PhD student in December 2017, funded by an FNR grant. In her thesis project she studies age-related changes in human pain perception and modulation using functional brain imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG).

She obtained her BSc in Cognitive Science from the University of Tübingen and her MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Skövde. Besides her PhD studies, she is currently completing a joint international master in affective neuroscience from Maastricht University and the University of Florence.

Her main research interests include among others:

  • pain perception, processing and modulation
  • emotion regulation strategies
  • ERP components of affective processing
  • affective psychopathologies, clinical neuropsychology
