Koryna Lewandowska, MA

A PhD Student at Institute of Economics and Management Faculty of Management and Social Communication of the Jagiellonian University. She has received a Master's degree in Psychology and Bachelor's degree in the field of International Culture Studies.

Her area of interest are neural bases of cognitive processes, especially creative process and problem solving.

Barbara Wachowicz, MA

She is a PhD student at Institute of Economics and Management Faculty of Management and Social Communication of the Jagiellonian University. In 2011 she received her MA's degree in Psychology and her BA's degree in International Culture Studies from the Jagiellonian University.

Her research interests focus on cognitive and affective neuroscience, particularly on the neural correlates of intuition and decisions.

Luiza Seklecka, MA

She holds an MA in filology at the University of Wroclaw, Poland, and a MA (2011) in psychology from Warsaw School of Social Sciences and Humanities in Warsaw. She is currently involved in PhD project on multidimentional perspective of burnout syndrom (at the Institute of Applied Psychology, Department of Neuroergonomics, Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland). She is the coauthor of 3 research publications. Her research interests focus on occupational stress, post traumatic stress disorder, burnout syndrom, and psychotherapy.

Magda Gawłowska, MA

A research assistant at the Neurobiology Department at the Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology. She specializes in dense array electroencephalography. She received MA degree in psychology, specialization: applied psychology from the Institute of Applied Psychology, Jagiellonian University (2012). She has gained an experience with EEG techniques during the internship at the Cognitive and Affective Psychophysiology Laboratory, at Stony Brook University, USA, under the supervision of Greg Hajcak Proudfit, PhD. She is currently involved in realization of research project 'Neural correlates of temperament dimensions in error monitoring and learning under reward and punishment conditions - dEEG and fMRI studies.' (PI: Justyna Mojsa-Kaja, PhD)

Her research interests focus on neural interconnections between cognition and emotions, with special regard to error-monitoring processes and error detection.

Justyna Janik, MA

A PhD student at the Institute of Psychology, Jagiellonian University. She is currently involved in realization of research project ‘The dual role of blue light – an interdisciplinary study on effects of the short wavelength visible light on circadian regulation, neural aspects of cognitive and affective functioning, and on the light contribution to degeneration and pathologies of the retina' (PI: prof. Tadeusz Sarna) at the Neurobiology Department MCB JU.
Her research interest focus on methods such as fMRI and oculography, neuroimaging data analysis, Brain – Computer Interface technology, Human – Computer Interaction and the neural basis of visual attention and information processing in humans.
