Anna Gehrlicher, PhD


Research Interests

As a cognitive neuroscientist, I investigate how the brain forms and stabilizes long-term memories, with a special focus on spontaneous consolidation processes occurring after learning. In my research, I combine behavioral data, psychophysiology and pharmacological manipulations with functional MRI data in humans.


In 2012, I received a Research Master in Psychology from the University of Amsterdam. I did my PhD in Translational Biomedicine at the Johannes Gutenberg University Medical Center (Mainz, Germany) together with Raffael Kalisch and Oliver Tüscher. During my PhD, I was gratefully supported by a Research Fellowship from the Mainz Research School TransMed. Since September 2018 I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Clinical Psychology at the University of Amsterdam.
