Maria Maraver Romero
Maria Jesus Maraver graduated in Psychology at the University of Jaen (Spain) in 2011 and obtained her Master in Neuroscience at the Autonoma University of Madrid (Spain), in 2013. She then moved to the University of Granada where she got her PhD in Psychology in 2017. She has worked in the Memory and Language Research Group under the supervision of Teresa Bajo and Carlos J. Gomez-Ariza. Recently she moved to Leiden University (Unit of Cognitive Psychology) where she is currently a postdoctoral fellow working under supervision of Dr. Lorenza S. Colzato.
Maria's research interest includes the study of human individual differences in cognitive control. In particular, how mechanisms of cognitive control and interference control in memory can be modulated by factors such as age, baseline capacities and resting state, cognitive training performance or non-invasive brain stimulation techniques, including transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation (tVNS). She approaches the study of the neural mechanisms of cognitive control by combining behavioral measures and brain activity recording techniques, such as brain oscillations.
