Ambra Ferrari Marie awarded Skłodowska-Curie European Postdoctoral Fellowship
The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen is proud and happy to announce that Ambra Ferrari has been awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Postdoctoral Fellowship - a grant for experienced postdoctoral researchers to receive advanced training and continue their research agenda in Europe.

Next year, Ambra Ferrari will move to CIMeC (University of Trento) to study the origins of multimodal communication and symbolic cognition in preverbal infants. Using a combination of EEG and multivariate decoding techniques, her project will be the first to directly decode the baby brain and establish a direct quantitative comparison with the adult brain to verify whether the two share a common cross-modal conceptual space, essential for exchanging meanings before and beyond spoken language.

Ambra says: 'I am deeply honored and grateful to the European Commission for funding my project. I owe to senior colleagues who shared their advice, and to my supervisors who taught me a lot along the way.'
