Group Jandl

Overview

The interests of our group focus on the neural correlates of the emerging states of the psychopathology of psychoses and where they are structurally based on.

We hypothesize a particular dysregulation between the neural correlates of pre-reflective and reflective self-awareness, which is crucial for the psychopathological transitions, leading to the emergence of psychotic symptoms, e.g. thoughts aloud, thought echo, ego-disorders, and auditory verbal hallucinations (AVH) (which imply both loss of ‘ownership’ and loss of ‘agency’).

As a first step, we are going to develop an experimental framework, i.a. in terms of suitable stimulation paradigms.
