María Jesús Maraver

Faculty and researchers

I’m a researcher in cognitive neuroscience at the Mind, Brain, and Behavior Research Center (CIMCYC) at the University of Granada. I obtained the PhD in Psychology at the University of Granada in 2017 (FPI grant BES-2013-066842), during which I did a four months research stay at the University of California-Irvine (United States, 2015). My postdoctoral trajectory has taken place at Leiden University, The Netherlands (2018-2019), and at the University of Lisbon, Portugal (2019-2022). My research interests focus on the study of the mechanisms by which we control our memories and how these can be modified at different stages of development, from adolescence to aging. I use a multidisciplinary approach combining behavioral analysis of memory tasks with brain activity recording techniques and non-invasive brain stimulation.

I’m part of the Leadership Team of Women in Cognitive Science in Europe (WiCS+ E), and I’m committed to the importance of bringing scientific knowledge to society and often participate in scientific dissemination events at local and international levels.
