Isabel Padrón

Isabel Padrón achieved her B. Sc. in Psychology at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) in 2002, and did her M. Sc. in Experimental Psychology in 2004 exploring the relationship between memory and emotion in elderly people. In 2008 she joined the Cognitive Processes and Behaviour Group (PCC) from University of Santiago de Compostela. From 2009 to 2012 she participated in several projects related to neural correlates of decision making and working memory. Since 2013 she collaborates with Profs. Isabel Fraga and Carlos Acuña-Fariña in the study of neural correlates of language processing. Since 2013 she also works at the the National Distance Education University (UNED) teaching several subjects in the Psychology degree.
