Marek Wypych, PhD
Principal Investigator

About me:

Now: I perform and analyze functional neuroimaging studies on human subjects. I also lead “Neural correlates of procrastination” project financed by NCN grant.

Previously: My PhD in the Laboratory of Visual System in the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology concerned processing of motion in cat's visual system. In my background I am a mathematician. During my master thesis I analyzed biomedical signals with wavelets and classified single evoked potentials recorded from rat barrel cortex.

Research interests:

I am interested in executive functions and neural basis of different strategies of time management (including procrastination).
