Our Spotlight this month is none other than our Student Rep,

                                                             Gowri!

 

 

 

 

Gowri is part of the WiSe 2019 cohort and has an Honours Bachelors degree in Psychology from Christ University, India

 

" I believe that each individual is a walking ecosystem; within our minds, various facets interact with elements they encounter both internally and externally all staged as though in an elaborate performance within a large biological play-field called the brain. Ever since I began my journey in Psychology I have been increasingly captivated with the processes that generate our selves, and ultimately a microcosm of humanity. And it was to explore the Cognitive Neurosciences, and get more exposure to advanced neuroimaging softwares and analyses that I came to Germany."

 

Courses that she has enjoyed through her studies are the lecture on Cognitive Neuroscience and the Seminar on Topics and Methods in Biological Psychology

 

A cool new update is that she has been interning at the Biological Psychology Lab at Humboldt University and is now also doing her Thesis at the EmoBio Lab at Uni Potsdam. She hopes to successfully complete her thesis and graduate from our Masters Program soon.
"I am very excited for the oppurtunity to work with fMRI data for my thesis, as I understand it's not something you get to do often. While I often feel quite out of depth as I continue to work on the data, I am taking the challenge to be an indicator that I'm in the right direction"
