Nils Kohn

Nils Kohn is an experimental psychologist who combines knowledge on emotion regulation, stress reactivity and self-control with modern cognitive neuroimaging methods. He completed his PhD at the University Hospital in Aachen in 2011 and since 2015 works as a senior researcher in the Memory and Emotion group and the Brain Networks in Regulation group at the Cognitive Neuroscience Department of the Radboud University Medical Centre and the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. His work consists of a range of studies on affective processing, its influences on cognitive and mnemonic processes and its interrelation with motivational aspects. Major foci in these fields are related to questions on how our emotions are consciously or unconsciously regulated, which motivational and physiological factors have an influence and whether regulatory principles transfer to other domains of human functioning, such as memory and executive functioning. Olfaction plays an influential role in regulation of emotion, motivational processes and associative memories. Furthermore, it has unique neuro-anatomical and functional substrates. These aspects make research on olfaction an important topic in current projects in the lab.
