Anke Braun was just awarded her PhD with distinction. She successfully defended her thesis on the computational and neural bases of history biases in perceptual decisions. She gave a wonderful overview over the background of her work and the empirical studies making up her thesis. This was followed by an in-depth discussion with the three committee members, two of whom were present in person and the third connected via Zoom. It was our lab’s first PhD defense under Covid-19 regulations, unfortunately without a public audience. However, the rest of the lab joined via Zoom and we had a wonderful (and socially-distant) get-together afterwards – the first since the start of the pandemic, a much needed event!

Dr. Anke Braun with her new (well deserved) hat. Needs some time to get used to, just like the MN mask…

Congrats, Anke! We are looking forward to continuing to work with you in the coming years!

PhD “summa cum laude” for Anke Braun
