PD Dr. Thomas Töllner

Winter Semester 2014/15

Thomas Töllner – PortraitThomas Töllner is specialized in the neural mechanisms of human (visual, memory, and crossmodal) search behavior. His research concentrates on the combination of behavioral and electrophysiological brain responses, with the aim to isolate perceptual and response-related processes as a function of a variety of intra- and interindividual biases. After finishing a diploma study program in sports sciences at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, he received his Ph.D. in psychology from LMU Munich in 2008. In addition, Thomas spent some time abroad working at several laboratories in London (Birkbeck College), Las Vegas (UNLV), and San Diego (UCSD), respectively. Since 2010, he is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Experimental Psychology (LMU Munich), where he has been also coordinating the EEG & Behavior Lab since 2011.

The main objective of his stay as a Junior Researcher in Residence at CAS lies in the finalization of his habilitation thesis which centers on the topic "Lateralized Attention in the Brain: Top-down versus Bottom-up Biases in Human Search Behavior".
