Organization Committee

Sören Krach is head of the Social Neuroscience Lab at the Department of Psychiatriy and Psychotherapy at Lübeck University. Sören Krach is studying the behavioral and physiological manifestations of social emotions and their implications for applied clinical research. Based on psychological concepts he developed experimental paradigms that allow the investigation of emotional processes in interactive and ecologically valid environments allowing new insights into how social context variables impact emotional experiences and their consequences for psychiatric and neurological conditions.

Frieder Paulus is a Postdoc at the Social Neuroscience Lab at the Department of Psychiatriy and Psychotherapy at Lübeck University. He studied Psychology at Bielefeld University and he obtained his PhD at the Department of Psychiatry at Marburg University. He has a broad research interest and uses various methods to examine the social context dependent modulations of neural circuits. In the Social Neuroscience Lab he develops novel paradigms to model social interactions and interpersonal emotions to apply these in research on autism and social anxiety.

Ulrike Krämer is head of the Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at the Department of Neurology at Lübeck University. In her lab, she uses a multitude of neuroscientific methods (EEG, fMRI, fNIRS, tDCS, lesion studies) to study cognitive and affective control in humans. A focus of her research is on aggressive behavior, which she and her colleagues investigate by developing and implementing interactive aggression paradigms for use in the MRI scanner.

Markus Wöhr is Postdoc at the Social Neuroscience Group at Marburg University. He has a broad background in animal behavior and translational research models for neuropsychiatric dysfunctions, with specific training and expertise in behavioral neuroscience of affective and neurodevelopmental disorders. His main research interests include neurobiological mechanisms underlying social behavior, acoustic communication through ultrasonic vocalizations, and socio-affective information processing in rodents.
