Respiration is one of the fundamental rhythms of life, with its effects stretching far beyond basic oxygenation. Recent animal models have demonstrated that breathing shapes brain function and that this may modulates how we process basic perceptual stimuli and regulate cognitive processes. My group and I purse how this rhythm affects the brain, perception and cognition in humans. To do this we develop new electrophysiological tools, as well as psychophysical and behavioral test paradigms. We combine these with a wide range of psychophysiological measures and structural and functional MRI. Our goal is to understand how this rhythmic activity, repeated 9-24 times each minute, shapes and interacts with our sensory systems. For more information visit the Perceptual neuroscience lab at KI:
