Laura Pasqualette graduated in Biomedical Sciences from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). After her experience researching the gut microbiota-brain interaction, she decided to pursue a master in Neuroscience at Goethe University. Supervised by Dr. Edward Vessel from the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics, she wrote her master thesis was about the role of self-relevance during aesthetic experiences. Because her passion about cognitive psychology continued to grow, she joined our group as a PhD student to work on the DFG-funded project “Overt and covert attention to emotional faces in realistic social situations”.
