Katharina Kühne

Katharina Kühne ist wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin und Doktorandin in der Potsdam Embodied Cognition Group (PECoG). Sie hat einen Diplom-Abschluss als Sprachenlehrerin (Staatliche Universität zu Kostroma, Russland), einen Magister-Abschluss in Linguistik (Freie Universität, Berlin, Deutschland) und einen Masterabschluss in kognitiver Psychologie (Universität Potsdam, Deutschland). Ihre Forschungsinteressen sind verkörperte Sprach- und Zahlenverarbeitung, Bilingualismus, soziale Robotik, Mensch-Roboter Interaktion und kognitive Neuropsychologie.

In ihrer Promotion forscht Katharina zum motorischen Priming in bei Zufallszahlen (random number generation, RNG) und Arithmetik einzelner Zahlen (single digit arithmetics, SDA), in Kombination mit motorischen Zweitaufgaben.

Ihre Expertise liegt im Bereich der Elektroenzephalografie (EEG), der transkraniellen Magnetstimulation (TMS), der Greifkraftmessung, sowie in den neuropsychologischen Rehabilitationsmethoden.
