Christine Wiebking

Graduate Student

M.Sc.

Contact: Mind, Brain Imaging and Neuroethics Research Unit, room 6437

Interests: Are emotions modulated by the resting state activity of our brain or by our degree of interoceptive awareness? To address this question I am interested in investigating the neuronal activity during rest and interoception using fMRI in healthy subjects as well as in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD).
