Dr Johanna Bergmann                                                                                           


I graduated from the University of Mainz & the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt with a Diplom (~Msc) in psychology in 2011. I did my PhD at the University of New South Wales in Sydney and at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, from which I graduated in early 2015 (supervisor: Prof. Joel Pearson). After a one-year postdoc at the University of New South Wales, I joined Prof. Lars Muckli’s lab in March 2016 to study non-retinal visual processing in low-level visual brain areas using high-field fMRI.
