Dr Jordan Pierce

Jordan Pierce is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Basic Neurosciences at the University of Geneva. She obtained her Ph.D. and M.S. in psychology from the University of Georgia, USA. Her current projects include a study utilizing real-time fMRI neurofeedback to rehabilitate visual attention deficits in stroke patients with hemispatial neglect and an fMRI study addressing the role of the cerebellum and basal ganglia in processing emotional prosody.
