Katharina Kühne is a PhD student of the Potsdam Embodied Cognition Group (PECoG). She holds a diploma in language teaching (Kostroma State University, Russia), a master’s degree in Linguistics (Free University, Berlin, Germany) and a master’s degree in Cognitive Psychology (Potsdam University, Germany). Her research interests are embodied language and number processing, bilingual language processing, social robotics, human-robot interaction and cognitive neuropsychology.

In her Ph.D. project, Katharina is studying motor priming in random number generation (RNG) und single digit arithmetics (SDA).

Her expertise includes electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), grip force sensors as well as neuropsychological neurorehabilitation. This person has no teaching duties and is paid from a research grant.
