J. Paneva

I am a PhD student at the Brain Stimulation and Cognition group, under the supervision of Dr. Felix Duecker, Dr. Teresa Schuhmann and Prof. Alexander Sack. My research is in the areas of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), electroencephalography (EEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), depression and brain networks.

My projects involve the concurrent use of EEG-TMS-fMRI to investigate how brain states, such as cognitive state or oscillatory state, as well as brain-wide network dynamics can influence how TMS acts in the brain, and therefore learn how to improve the efficacy of TMS treatments for depression. Other projects I am working on involve the use of clinical TMS protocols and behavioural testing, in order to illuminate the ways in which different cognitive brain states can change task performance after TMS.


I teach in two courses in the Psychology Bachelor. They are Discover Psychology: Meet your Brain (IPN1029B) and Consciousness (PSY2025). I also supervise Research Master and Bachelor students, as well as give lectures.
