Professor M. Rosario Rueda, from the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) in this university. Applicants must comply with the Mobility Rule (more information in the participant guide: http://sl.ugr.es/097k).

The CIMCYC is a new research center devoted to study mind and brain processes related to human cognition and behaviour. This center has a wide range of facilities including MRI scanner, various EEG lab, TMS, Eye-tracking, and numerous behavioural assessment cabins, as well as seminar rooms. The center hosts a good number of research groups carrying out investigation in various domains of Psychology, thus providing a rich multidisciplinary atmosphere. Within the CIMCYC, the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (labncd), is managed by M. Rosario Rueda and belong to the Cognitive Neuroscience research group. The labncd has a research trajectory extending for over a decade studying the development of attention and self-regulation in children from a multifaceted perspective: temperament, behaviour, cognition and brain processes. Personnel working in this lab have access to all facilities offered by the CIMCYC.  

In broad terms, the research conducted at the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (labncd) deals with the development of attention and self-regulation. Our research focus on studying cognitive and brain mechanisms involved in the development of aspects of attention related to executive control and behavioural self-regulation, as well as constitutional (e.g. temperament and genes) and environmental (e.g. familiar socio-economic status and education) factors affecting such development. We have also developed a computer program to train attention and are interested on testing effects of training at the cognitive and brain levels in paediatric population. Our current research focus on populations within a wide age range (from 6-9 months-old babies to 12 yr. old children) and both typically developing trajectories as well as children at-risk of developing attention-related disorders.
