After some time of studying Artificial Intelligence, Rowena Emaus completed her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the Radboud University of Nijmegen. During her Bachelor’s she has done research on the effect of attention on matching different incoming signals in the brain. For example, if the sound of a bouncing ball and a movie of a bouncing ball are seen as belonging to one object, even when the sound is not in sync. Besides that, she investigated whether your amount of attention plays a role in the process. At the moment she is enrolled in the Master’s program Cognitive Neuroscience at the Radboud University where she will start doing research again next year.
Besides her study she likes cats, and also dogs. And even though she is easily fascinated to study all kinds of things, she can really appreciate spending her time less ‘brainy’.
