Dr. med. Max-Philipp Stenner
Max-Philipp Stenner is head of the Motor Learning Lab at the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology and at Otto-von-Guericke University, and deputy head of the LIN Department of Behavioral Neurology. His research, funded by a Freigeist Fellowship of the Volkswagen Foundation, investigates how human motor control and perception interact for motor learning, and how our subjective experience of control emerges from this interaction. As a clinician scientist, he is particularly interested in the subjective experience of control in neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders, including Tourette’s syndrome, ADHD, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (in collaboration with Martin Walter, Gerd Wagner, Carolin Ligges, Florian Zepf, and Kerstin Krauel). His major expertise is a combination of psychophysics with human non-invasive and invasive neurophysiology, including magneto- and electroencephalography as well as intracranial and spinal recordings of local field potentials in humans.
