Gabriela Rezende


Ph.D student

Paris Cité University

After graduating in Advertising in Brazil (2010), Gabriela obtained a bachelor’s degree in Psychology (2016), and a master’s degree in Psychology of cognitive and social development of children and adolescents (2018) at Paris Descartes University. She is currently undergoing her PhD at the LaPsyDÉ under the supervision of Pr. Arnaud Cachia in Cognitive Neurosciences. Her research aims to investigate the variability of inhibitory control from a gene-brain-cognition approach. She is particularly focused on genetic aspects, early neurodevelopmental constraints and neuroplastic changes in children and adolescents that take part in an intensive inhibitory control training. Gabriela is also interested in the effects of inhibitory control training via mindfulness meditation.
