I completed my Research Master in Cognitive Neuropsychology at the Vreije Universiteit Amsterdam in 2017 and am currently enrolled at the University Hamburg for the master programme “Systematic Musicology”. In 2012, I graduated from the University of Sussex with a BSc in Neuroscience with Cognitive Science. At the lab, I am continuing a project that I started working on for my master’s thesis under supervision of Tom Pfeffer. It is concerned with the changes in global brain state, as measured with MEG, in connection with pupil-linked arousal. To investigate this, we use MEG, pupillometry, and pharmacological manipulations.
