Dr. Júlia Sala-Bayo

Postdoctoral Neuroscientist

Júlia Sala-Bayo graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Barcelona, Spain, in 2015. In 2016, she completed an M.Sc. (Hons) in Neuroscience, investigating the link between dendritic spine morphology and cognitive impairments following nicotine withdrawal. In 2020, Júlia completed her Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge in the groups of Prof Jeffrey Dalley and Prof Trevor Robbins, funded by La Caixa Fellowship and a fellowship from Boehringer Ingelheim, Germany, where she spent a year in industry. Her research investigated the neuromodulation and neural basis of cognitive flexibility, using different behavioural tasks, pharmacology and optogenetics approaches, combined with computational modelling.

In October 2020, Júlia joined the groups of Prof Charlotte Stagg and Prof Andrew Sharott at the MRC BNDU as a Postdoctoral Neuroscientist to investigate the functional role of cortical beta and gamma oscillations in motor learning.
