CIMCYC researchers Cristina Lopez-Rojas and Rafael Roman-Caballero have received Global Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships for collaborative research projects between our center and non-European universities. Cristina will work with Viorica Marian at Northwestern University in the USA and with Teresa Bajo, director of the Memory and Language group at CIMCYC. In their project, they will study the relationship between bilingualism and prospective memory. For his part, Rafael will carry out cross-cultural research on music and language in babies, in collaboration with Laurel Trainor, director of the McMaster Institute for Music & the Mind-LIVELab, at McMaster University (Canada) and Juan Lupiáñez, director of the Cognitive Neuroscience group at CIMCYC. This project has also been awarded a Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship. Each year, these prestigious Canadian research contracts are offered to academics who have a track record of excellence and leadership and an exceptionally high-quality research program.


Additionally,  David Richter will join the CIMCYC on a European Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral contract, collaborating with María Ruz and the Human Neuroscience Laboratory on a project focused on understanding the predictive mechanisms of the human brain. Also, our researcher Sofia Amaoui, from the PNinsula research group headed by Miguel Pérez, will study the brain correlates of emotional processing and empathy and how they relate to attitudes towards gender violence, together with researcher Carmen Morawetz at the University of Innsbruck (Austria).


CIMCYC congratulates our researchers for receiving these prestigious fellowships, which reflect the excellence of the work carried out at the center.
