PhD thesis defense Joaquin Peñalver de Andres
The ARTORG Center congratulates Joaquin Peñalver de Andres for successfully defending his PhD thesis on “EEG-based Imaging of Cognitive-Attentional Processes Related to Motor Performance” on Thursday, 3 November 2022. Joaquin investigated the role of functional brain organization for motor skill acquisition using EEG neuroimaging. Together with postdoctoral researcher Karin Bütler, he found that resting-state networks linked to cognitive functions affect posterior motor performance and that task instructions modulate the attentional networks and enhance performance during motor practice.
