Milena Rabovsky, Group leader
I did my PhD at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain (Germany). After research stays at the University of Western Ontario (Canada), Stanford University (USA) and Freie Universität Berlin (Germany), I started as principal investigator and tenure track professor at the University of Potsdam. I try to better understand how language processing works in the brain, using neuroscientific evidence and computational modelling (see Overview).

I completed my MSc in Language Sciences at UCL (UK) in 2018. Following that, I spent a year working as an intern at MPI for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen. I joined the Cognitive Neuroscience lab as a PhD student in December 2019 to work on a project investigating the intricacies of the N400's functional significance.

I obtained both my B.Sc and M.Sc. in Psychology (Kassel/Halle-Wittenberg/Leipzig). I now joined the Cognitive Neuroscience lab in 2020 as a PhD student. For my project I am planning to use EEG and pharmacology to investigate the relation between prediction errors, adaptation/learning, and their neuromodulation during language comprehension.

After I completed my BA in psychology (2017), I started my M.Sc. in the Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience program at Freie University Berlin. Currently, I am working on my M.Sc. thesis which investigates implicit learning during sentence reading by looking at the N400 ERP component.
