Neza Vehar joins the Blanke Lab
Neza Vehar joins EPFL for a PhD on the sensorimotor and cognitive brain mechanisms of a specific hallucination called presence hallucination, using neuroscience robotics, cognitive psychology, and virtual reality technology.
Neza received a B.Sc. in Psychology from the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and a M.Sc. from University College London. At UCL’s Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience she studied episodic memory replay mechanisms using MEG, working with Elliott Wimmer and Ray Dolan. She also was a research assistant at University of London and Royal Holloway with Manos Tsakiris, investigating the role of interoceptive cardiac signals in political leader choices using ECG and probed social perception of artificial faces, generated by GAN algorithms.
Welcome to the Lab Neza!
