Aleksandra Pidde received both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Neuroinformatics from University of Warsaw under the Applications of Physics in Biology and Medicine Program. Her bachelor’s thesis was entitled “Classification of motor imagery (in movement imagery EEG paradigm) based on regularized LDA classifier” and was supervised by Dr. Habil. Jaroslaw Zygierewicz. This work utilised linear discriminant analysis classifiers to differentiate imagery of right hand, left hand and leg movement based on EEG signals. Aleksandra’s master’s thesis was entitled “Studying the influence of synaptic plasticity in different time scales on network activity“ and she worked with a model based on simplified synaptic tagging and capture to study synaptic plasticity with consolidation. This work was supervised by Dr. Habil. Jaroslaw Zygierewicz and Dr. Franciszek Rakowski. Aleksandra has also completed additional project work within the same group; “Time evolution of Steady State Visual Evoked Potential”, “Testing the efficiency of the Brain Computer-Interface (BCI)” and “Time evolution of functional connectivity based on EEG in movement imagery paradigm”. She also completed an internship working under the supervision of Prof. Michał Żochowski (Department of Physics and The Biophysics Research Division at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor), working on the project “Spatio–temporal pattern formation in the heterogeneous neural network”.
In 2015, Aleksandra began her PhD research at the University of Lancaster working on the project “Dynamics of membrane potential oscillations in biological cells “, which is jointly supervised by Prof. Aneta Stefanovska at the University of Lancaster and Profs. Ernest Montbrio and Ralph G Andrzejak at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
