Postdocs

 

Camila Sardeto Deolindo has a background in engineering and completed her PhD in health sciences in San Paulo, Brazil. Her work will focus on computational modelling of the thermal grill illusion using psychophysics, as well as MEG and OPM techniques.

Alexandra Mitchell has a background in cognitive neuroscience and has completed her PhD in Psychology at the University of St. Andrews. Her work focuses on investigating temperature and pain perception using MRI techniques.

PhD students

Camilla Eva Andersen has completed her master's degree in cognitive science at AU and she is currently a PhD student in the lab. Her work focuses on computational modelling of temperature and pain perception using behavioural and MEG techniques in both healthy volunteers and patients with diabetic neuropathy.

 

Research assistants and interns

Rebecca Astrid Böhme is an Erasmus student and Intern. In the lab, she has helped with data collection of behavioural and Magnetic Resonance Imaging data related to pain. At the moment she is completing a bachelor degree in Psychology at University of Potsdam. Before studying Psychology, she worked as a trained nurse and specialised on paediatric anaesthesia.

Daniel Elmstrom Christensen & Jesper Fischer Ehmsen are cognitive science students working on applying Hierarchical Gaussian Filter to model how expectations influence the perception of innocuous thermal sensations and the thermal grill illusion.

 

Alumni

Lena Hansen was a Bachelor’s student in Cognitive Science at Aarhus University. For her bachelor thesis, she worked on on computational modelling of the thermal grill illusion.

Sofie Jacobsen is a Bachelor’s student in Cognitive Science at Aarhus University. In the lab, she assisted with data collection and pre-processing of MEG data.

Melina Nielsen is a Bachelor’s student in Cognitive Science at Aarhus University. In the lab, she assisted with data collection of behavioral data on quantitative sensory testing, paradoxical heat sensations and the thermal grill illusion.

 

Anna Stuckert is a Bachelor’s student in Cognitive Science at Aarhus University. In the lab, she assisted with data collection of behavioral data on the thermal grill illusion.
