How our brain stores information in the short term is an elusive topic of neuroscience.
As a PhD student of the lab, I am trying to answer it by investigating how we deal with distracting information and how memories interfere with each other.
I graduated in Biology at the University of Barcelona in 2015 and immediately started a master in Neuroscience at Pompeu Fabra University (Master in Brain and Cognition). During my master I got involved with lab under the supervision of PhD Albert Compte. My first project in the lab was to investigate the topography of how visual memories interfere with each other by combining computational models, psychophysics and monkey’s single-unit recordings. In collaboration with the Karolinska Institute (Stockholm), I started a PhD about the biological mec
