Esma Ece Uluğ

Biography

 

I completed my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering from Baskent University. My dissertation project would be on material and biological systems which was supported with a TUBITAK grant.

Then, for my post graduate degree I preferred again Biomedical Engineering department which is provided me panoramic knowledge about the whole field then I decided to focus on neuroengineering.

I am currently a master student at Neurosignal Analysis Laboratory at Bogazici University Institute of  Biomedical Engineering.

My research area is mapping brain structure and function.

Moataz Assem

PhD Candidate, University of Cambridge

Biography

http://www.neuroscience.cam.ac.uk/directory/profile.php?mimma2

Before I joined NeurAl, I studied Medicine at Alexandria University and founded the Alexandria Neuroscience Committee to improve neuroscience research and education in Alexandria.

I  started here as an intern then enrolled in the Biomedical Engineering MS program at Bogazici University specializing in the Neuroengineering track.

My thesis project investigates fMRI responses of the Multiple Demand system  (MD) under the co-advising of Evelina Fedorenko at MIT Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department. I investigate the relation between individual differences in executive abilities and MD activity through fusion of behavioral measures with fMRI BOLD measures.

Biography

https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Esin_Karahan

I received my B.S. degree in electrical and electronics engineering in 2005 and M.S. degree in biomedical engineering in 2007 from Boğaziçi University. I am working towards the PhD degree at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Boğaziçi University.
During my PhD studies I attended ESMRMB Lectures on MRI – fMRI titled “From Neurophysiology to Cognitive Neuroscience” in Tubingen, Germany and FENS-IBRO Summer School “Imaging Brain Function in animals and Humans” in Lausanne-Geneva, Switzerland. I visited Cuban Neuroscience Center, Havana, Cuba in 2013 and UESTC, Chengdu, China in 2014 during summer term as a collaboration with Pedro Valdes-Sosa to work on tensor methods in neuroimaging. During my master’s, I worked in Istanbul University, Biomedical and Clinical Engineering Center as a biomedical engineer for one year. Currently, I’m a research assistant at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering. I’m a member of Organization of Human Brain Mapping and Turkish Magnetic Resonance Society.
