Maryam Karimian

Postdoctoral Researcher


Maryam Karimian received her doctoral degree in cognitive computational neuroscience at Maastricht University, the Netherlands. She has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Physics from Isfahan University of Technology, Iran. During her PhD, Maryam developed models of synaptic and myelin plasticity in large/meso-scale abstract neural networks. In addition, she investigated the potential function of brain oscillations (specifically in Gamma frequency range) and their synchronization among neural networks of lower-level cortical areas in perception and perceptual learning of visual figure-ground segregation. To perform this study, she conducted mean field oscillatory modelling approaches and psychophysics experimentation.

At SCIoI, Maryam works on the Project 42.
