After completing her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of Bremen, Marie Meemken studied Neurocognitive Psychology at the University of Oldenburg. Her Master’s thesis was focused on effects of selectivity and preparation on neuronal markers of inhibition in healthy participants. For this, she acquired simultaneous electroencephalogram (EEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. During her PhD, she is concentrating on identifying cognitive markers of obesity. For this, she utilizes behavioral paradigms like Reversal-Learning and Pavlovian-to-Instrumental Transfer (PIT) with different forms of reward.
