Dr Henning Holle's research is driven by a strong interest in the interaction of the senses. For his research, he uses behavioural and neuroscience techniques (e.g., TMS, fNIRS, EEG, fMRI).
After being awarded a Diploma in Psychology by the University of Trier in Germany in 2003, he moved to the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany, where he wrote his doctoral thesis on how gesture and language interact in the brain.
After completing this dissertation, he joined the Synaesthesia Group at the University of Sussex to work on a project on mirror-touch synaesthesia.
Dr Holle joined the University of Hull as a lecturer in psychology in 2012 and was promoted to senior lecturer in 2015.
