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.
