Master student: Irene Cumplido Mayoral
Irene Cumplido Mayoral (1994) Biomedical Engineering at the University Carlos III of Madrid and received his Bachelor degree in 2016. She is now a student in the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (Neural and Motor systems) at the University of Twente. She is now working on her Master thesis at the CNPH.
Irene’s interests include understanding the brain’s cortical activity in different disorders, so as to develop or improve different treatments. With this aim she makes use of data analysis and processing, specially EEG data. In addition, she is now focusing on epilepsy, in order to understand the nature of the brain’s excitability in this condition and improve the actual drug treatments.
At the CNPH, Irene is working on a study to evaluate whether double pulse Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can be used to diagnose epilepsy by measuring and understanding cortical excitability. Her work focuses on processing the EEG data in collaboration with A.A. De Goede and Prof. Dr. Michel J.A.M. van Putten.
