Goldy Yadav

PhD, Post-Doctoral Researcher

ibB7zK5s 400x400Goldy completed her PhD (2015-2020) in Cognitive Science at the Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar (with Prof. Pratik Mutha), where she investigated the underlying mechanisms mediating learning, retention and generalization of newly learned skilled movements, and the interactions between spatial working memory and motor skill memory. She was a Fulbright-Nehru visiting doctoral fellow at the National Institutes of Health (with Dr. Leonardo Cohen) where she developed projects exploring the role of sensorimotor neural oscillatory activity on motor output.
