In 2007, I got my Master’s degree in Psychology (University of Coimbra), under the supervision of Professor Dr. Miguel Castelo-Branco and Professor Dr. Marieke van Asselen. This work was dedicated to the study of visuospatial impairments in a rare genetic developmental disorder, Williams syndrome, and resulted in a thesis entitled: “Impaired processing of hierarchical figures in Williams syndrome: Evidence for a local bias in perception, memory and visuomotor construction”.
In 2008 I started my PhD in Biomedical Sciences (Faculty of Medicine, University of Coimbra). This project was developed as a continuation of the previous work and we were aimed at exploring the dorsal visual impairment in Williams syndrome (SFRH/BD/41401/2007) using several techniques, such as, neuropsychological assessment, behavioral measures, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG/ERP).
Since October 2012 I am developing work as research assistant in a project entitled “Translating the inhibition hypothesis in Neurofibromatosis Type 1 into the human disease”.
