I am a Cognitive Neuroscience master student from University of Trento- Italy. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Science Psychology, and an Mphil in Clinical Health Psychology from University of Cape Coast, Ghana. I worked with the University of Cape Coast (Department of Education and Psychology), as a teaching assistant. I also did an internship at 37 Millitary hospital (therapy and wellness unit), and the Center for Educational Research Evaluation and Development, University of Cape Coast, Ghana. I am equipped with skills in Matlab programming, R programming and SPSS Statistical Tool. I am fascinated about the use of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as TMS and other neuroimaging techniques such as EEG and FMRI to explore and understand the neural systems that support cognitive functions and plasticity in human. At Prof. Dr. Til Ole Bergmann’s Neurostimulation research lab, I am working with Mr. Umair Hassan ( PhD candidate) on EEG Sleep spindles Triggered TMS.  The study focuses on spindles in NREM sleep  to investigate memory consolidation by applying real-time EEG triggered TMS.
