Biography ICASA members

Izabela Przezdzik, PhD student

Izabela Przezdzik did her Ph.D. at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. In her work she has focused on studying fMRI resting-state functional connectivity to understand cognitive functions, such as language and memory, as well as goal-oriented behaviours in healthy populations. Understanding this in healthy cohorts is important for understanding cognitive disorders. Previously, she completed a master’s degree in Brain imagining and Cognitive Neuroscience (University of Birmingham, UK) and a bachelor degree in Psychology (University of Derby, UK). She has a strong interest in psychiatry and neurodevelopmental disorders. As ICASA coordinator, she will be supporting the project from the administrative side and coordinating the collaboration between ICASA members.
