Bernadette Jansma Biosketch
Bernadette M. Jansma is Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Processing. Her core research is on bridging the disciplines of perception and attention with language production, using advanced neuroimaging methods such as fMRI/EEG/multivariate pattern analysis. Bernadette received her PhD in 1997 at the Max Planck Institute in Nijmegen on language production. In 1997-98 she was awarded a McDonnell Pew and a German Academic Exchange (DAAD) Postdoc fellowship to work at UCSD San Diego on the time course of information selection in language production. Since 1998, she is affiliated with the UM. In 2002, she received an NWO Aspasia grant and was co-investigator in two German DFG Schwerpunkt programs on language production. Next to her core research, she contributed to building up the FPN Cognitive Neuroscience research line as well as related training programs, among them the FPN research master “Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience”, the graduate school “EU Marie Curie Initial Training Network NeuroPhysics”, and the NWO graduate program “Methods in Neuroimaging”. She is currently Dean of the faculty Psychology and Neuroscience, UM.
