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 42B, ”Behavioural contagion in human and artificial multi-agent system – integrating the cognitive and collective behaviour perspective using VR”
