Aleksandra Domagalik, PhD

A research assistant at the Neuroergonomics Department at the Institute of Applied Psychology, Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland. She is a head of Dense Array EEG lab within the Department.

She has gain an experience with fMRI techniques during the internship in the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, USA and the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands. She is experienced with preparation, conducting the experiment, and data analysis procedures of fMRI technique. She is also experienced with EEG technique. She participated at several EEG workshops and trainings. Currently she is working within the research grant aiming at describing patterns of bioelectric brain activity during error processing.

She defended PhD thesis at the Biophysics Department at the Faculty of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Biotechnology of the Jagiellonian University. Her PhD thesis, under supervision of Prof. Tadeusz Marek and Prof. Wojciech Froncisz, concern applying functional connectivity methods to fMRI data in order to verify time-of-day factor on executive neural network.

Her research interests focus on neural networks for attention and executive functions and on exploring neuroimaging data analysis methods in order to study those networks.
