Loretxu Bergouignan, PhD
(Postdoctoral Fellow)


Loretxu was a postdoc in the lab from 2009-2013 and worked on the question of how the brain transforms life experiences into memories? Loretxu's main focus is to challenge the understanding of neurocognitive processes that impact the mnemonic integration of our experiences and how self-representation influences this process.
