Ana Isabel Sanchez Jimenez
Ana studied a BSc in Basic and Experimental Biomedicine at University of Seville (Spain) and she completed an MRes in Brain Sciences at University College London, thanks to an Excellence Scholarship for Postgraduate Studies in Europe from La Caixa Foundation. In 2019, she joined the Auditory Neuroscience Group as a DPhil student in Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics.
Under the supervision of Andy King and Fernando Nodal, she investigates the neural plasticity mechanisms involved in the adaptation of the brain to unilateral hearing loss. Particularly, she focuses on how this adaptation occurs under natural conditions. To address this, she combines behavioural research in humans and ferrets, electrophysiological recordings and anatomy.
