Dr. Kathrin Ohla is leader of the Psychophysiology of Food Perception group at the German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke, associated researcher with the Berlin School of Mind & Brain and the Department of Cognitive Psychology at the Humboldt University Berlin.
She received her doctoral degree in Psychology from Leipzig University and has been a postdoctoral fellow at the Nestlé Research Center in Lausanne/Switzerland and the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia. Her overall scientific aim is to unravel the psychophysiological mechanisms underlying the perception and preference of food objects with a focus on the brain mechanisms of (1) the sensory processes involved, particularly gustation, olfaction, and vision, (2) cross-modal and multisensory interactions, and (3) modulations by attention and prior experience as well as physiological states.
