dr. S. Enriquez Geppert
Stefanie Enriquez-Geppert is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Clinical and Developmental Neuropsychology at the University of Groningen. Her research focuses on executive (dys)functions. Executive functions are higher cognitive functions that regulate and control primary processes such as memory, attention and perception and are regarded especially imperative for success in daily life since they enable adaptive goal-oriented behaviour. The scope of her examination is the specification of neurocognitive processes underlying executive (dys)functions in young and elderly participants, and in particular in patients with impaired executive control (e.g., schizophrenia, obesity, and brain lesion patients). In a substantial portion of her work, she develops and applies neuroscientific approaches (including neurofeedback and behavioural computerized training) to enhance executive functions in clinical subject groups. To pursue her research agenda, electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have become her major tools. Through them, she analyse event-related potentials and -oscillations, current density reconstructions, as well as functional connectivity. She additionally utilizes structural imaging for the assessment of brain morphology and MR-spectroscopy for the analysis of brain metabolism. Stefanie Enriquez-Geppert is strongly motivated to share and explain psychological knowledge with students and to fuel their enthusiasm for psychological science. Over the last years she supervised students and taught courses addressing topics in clinical neuropsychology.
Stefanie Enriquez-Geppert studied at the University of Münster, Germany and graduated with an emphasis on cognitive neurosciences in 2007. After her psychology studies she worked on a Phd project about “inhibition and conflict monitoring as assessed with EEG, structural and functional MRI” at the Institute for Biomagnetism and Biosignalanalysis (University of Münster, Germany) under the supervision of Christo Pantev. She took part at the PhD program of the Otto Creutzfeld Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience, which is an interdisciplinary research center within the life sciences, and finished her PhD in the year 2010. After that she did a postdoc with Christoph Herrmann at the University of Oldenburg (Germany) with a focus on neural oscillations. Following this, she did a second postdoc with Francisco Barcelo at the University of the Balearic Islands in Spain. She spent research stays at the labs of Kenneth Hugdahl (University of Bergen, Norway) and John Duncan (MRC in Cambridge, UK).
