LEAD Research Network



New Junior Research Group Leader

Dr. Thomas Dresler joined Intersection 2

On May 15, Dr. Thomas Dresler joined the LEAD team as junior research group leader of the Intersection Educational Neuroscience.

His main research interests are the application of neuroscientific methods in various settings (e.g., educational school settings and clinical settings) to investigate involved neural processes and to answer some of the education-relevant research questions:

  • What are the neural processes involved in mathematics education?
  • Which neural markers are associated with successful arithmetic learning?
  • Can neuroscientific methods be used to monitor learning processes?
  • How can the findings be translated into educational research?

Previously, he was involved in different research projects using the methods of electroencephalography (EEG), near-infrared sprectroscopy (NIRS), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
