This is the website of Marius Zimmermann, postdoctoral researcher at the Cognitive Systems Unit at the Technical University of Denmark. I am interested in the way we plan and coordinate actions, when acting alone (action planning), when performing actions together with other people (joint action), and when perceiving actions of others (action observation). I use behavioural and neuroimaging methods (MRI, TMS, EEG) in healthy subjects to study how neural structures and functions support action related cognition.


22-06-2019 Poster accepted for EuroCogSci 2019
I am going to present a poster on our dual-EEG work on joint action at the European Conference for Cognitive Science 2019 (EuroCogSci) in September in Bochum (Germany). But first heading to the Joint Action Meeting (JAM8) taking place in Genova (Italy) during the second week of July, where SINe Lab head and members Ivana Konvalinka and Arianna Schiano will be giving talks on interpersonal coordination and joint attention, respectively.


18-06-2019 Manuscript accepted in Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience
A manuscript on processing of multiple overlapping task timelines in the context of multitasking has been accepted in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience. Based on an fMRI study conducted at Stockholm University we suggest that multiple overlapping task timelines/deadlines are represented spatially, possibly through embodied cognition.


01-01-2019 New postdoc position at SINe Lab at DTU Copenhagen
In January 2019 I started a new postdoc position, moving from Stockholm, Sweden to Copenhagen, Denmark. I will be working in the Social Internation and Neuroscience group (SINe Lab) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) with Ivana Konvalinka. The project investigates neurophysiological mechanisms underlying interpersonal coordination in joint action using real-time dual-EEG. More about the project can soon be found here.


16-07-2017 Paper accepted in Brain Structure and Function
A new paper has been accepted in Brain Structure and Function. In the paper Is the extrastriate body area part of the dorsal visuomotor stream? we report that functional and structural connectivity profiles indicate that EBA interacts more strongly with dorsal-stream regions compared to other portions of the occipito-temporal cortex involved in processing body parts (FBA) and object identification (LOC). These findings provide anatomical ground for a revision of the functional role of EBA.


28-12-2016 Starting as postdoc
Starting January 2017 I will be working as postdoctoral researcher at the Psychology Department at Stockholm University. Together with Prof. Timo Mäntylä I will investigate how to coordinate multiple action plans and action goals in multitasking settings.


23-11-2016 PhD thesis defended
On November 23, 2016, I successfully defended my PhD thesis entitled “A cortical mechanism for translating action goals into action plans”, at the Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Many thanks to my supervisors, members of the manuscript committee and corona, and my colleagues, friends and family that supported me during my PhD and joined me in the celebrations. A digital copy of my thesis can be downloaded here. If you prefer a printed copy feel free to contact me.
