Cognition, Perception, and Cognitive Neuroscience
Nadezhda received an MA in Linguistics at the University of Tübingen, where she conducted a bilingual decision-making experiment, investigating the foreign language effect, an effect in which people accept more risk in a foreign language. She also worked as research intern at Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain sciences where she assisted in fMRI research on syntactic processing in deaf signers.
I am interested in the bidirectional influence of cognition and heightened emotional states. I am particularly interested in examining how cognitive strategies may modulate the fear response.
