Katharina Rufener is Principal Investigator at the Neuropsychology Section, Department of Neurology Magdeburg. She runs a research project on the effects of transcranial electrical stimulation in children and adolescents diagnosed with developmental dyslexia. Here, she establishes an intervention that can be carried out by the patients and their caregivers independently at home. In addition, she is interested in electrophysiological biomarkers in dyslexia and their potential as diagnostic criteria. Her major expertise is in the area of non-invasive brain stimulation of the human auditory system, including speech and language processing. She will collaborate with Kerstin Krauel in Magdeburg and Carolin Ligges in Jena to investigate the neurophysiology and transcranial electrical stimulation of dyslexia.
