Dr. Xenia Grande

Postdoctoral Researcher

Xenia Grande completed her BSc in Psychology at Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands. She then graduated from Free University Berlin, Germany, with a MSc in Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience where she completed a research project on functional imaging of retrieval processes in ageing with Professor Yee Lee Shing at the Max-Planck Institute for Human Development. Xenia completed her Dr. rer. nat. in Cognitive Neurosciences in 2023 at the Otto-van-Guericke University Magdeburg. She was supervised by Professor Emrah Düzel at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases. Her work investigated the functional architecture of memory representations in subregions of the medial temporal lobe. She specialised in ultra-high resolution functional imaging and anatomical segmentation of the parahippocampal-hippocampal system in humans.

Xenia is currently pursuing postdoctoral research at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, co-supervised by Dr. Helen Barron at BNDU and Professor Jill O’Reilly at the Department of Experimental Psychology. She investigates how memories are organised during reactivation at rest, and how the human entorhinal-hippocampal circuitry is involved in that process. She combines high-field imaging, electrophysiology and machine learning methods in humans.
