About me

My name is (Magda)Lena Matyjek and I’m a researcher in the field of neuropsychology and social cognition. I am currently a doctoral candidate at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, working in prof. Dziobek’s Clinical Psychology of Social Interaction lab. My doctoral project investigates reward responsivity in autism and autistic traits.

I have earned my BSc and MSc in Cognitive Science at Jagiellonian University in Krakow. With exchange programs, I also studied Cognitive Science at University of Vienna, Austria, and Neuropsychology at University of Wollongong, Australia. I have gained research experience in a few EEG labs (see Work experience), and had a chance to work in international environments. You can download my full resume here:
