Hello,

My name is Benedikt Ehinger. I’m a PhD at the NeuroBioPsychology Lab at the University of Osnabrück.

Send me a message: science@benediktehinger.de

My studies and interests involve cognitive psychology, visual perception, categorization and cortocortical interactions. I am working with: M/EEG, Bayesian statistics and eye tracking.
Have a look at the projects for a showcase of past work
