A Bit About Me

I am a doctoral researcher and a psychologist, and in my research, I am currently focusing on identifying markers of cortical plasticity with human neuroimaging. Understanding cortical plasticity is crucial for rehabilitating brain diseases and neurodevelopment conditions across all age groups. However, there's currently no simple and validated way to determine cortical plasticity in humans.


My goal is to deepen our understanding of these markers, hoping to contribute to the development of more effective rehabilitation methods in the future.
