My name is Michael Gaebler, I’m a cognitive and neuroscientist at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences┬áin the Neurology Department’s Mind-Body-Emotion group and the MindBrainBody Institute.

I study how mental processes like thoughts or feelings relate to brain-body and brain-body-environment interactions in pathology and health. I conduct behavioral and neurophysiological experiments in classical lab environments but also using ambulatory assessment and virtual reality that allow a more “holistic” investigation of mental phenomena and promise an increased ecological and external validity of neuroscientific findings.
