Principal Investigator & Cognitive Neuroscience Director at FIU
Dr. Mattfeld is the Director of Mattfeld MaDLab. His research is focused on understanding the neurobiological mechanisms that support learning and memory, and how these mechanisms change as a result of development and neurodevelopmental disorders.
Dr. Mattfeld obtained his M.A. in Cognitive Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University. He later completed his Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of California, Irvine. He then received his postdoctoral training in developmental neuroscience from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Mandy’s research interests are primarily ADHD and its influences on memory and other cognitive processes. She has experience in GSR and EEG work and through her work in Madlab she has become proficient with fMRI.
Adam’s research is focused on the neural underpinnings of memory overgeneralilzation and brain changes across early development.
Arianna is a senior at FIU majoring in Natural and Applied Sciences with a minor in Biology. I am very interested in neurological and physiological research and I am on the pre-med track.
Fernando Melara Barahona
Fernando is an international student from El Salvador who is currently a sophomore majoring in Biomedical Engineering. He aims to gain experience, knowledge, and valuable insight into the processes and mechanisms that determine learning and memory. His goal is to attend medical school and continue doing research to serve his community and revolutionize the future of medicine.
Kaylee is interested in studying the neurobiological connections that govern memory formation and how these change with disorders like ADHD.
Paola is a rising senior majoring in Chemistry and minoring in Biology and Psychology. After graduation, she plans on getting involved with more research regarding cognitive neuroscience before applying to medical school.
