Plamina Dimanova finished her Bachelor's degree in Chemistry at the Goethe University in Frankfurt. Afterwards, she enrolled in the first class of the Translational Neuroscience Master’s program at the Heinrich-Heine University in Duesseldorf. During her Master’s studies, Plamina was involved in different projects employing neuroimaging methods to investigate embodied cognition, working memory, decision making and emotion recognition. In her Master thesis, she examined the developmental differences between healthy adolescents and adults during gain and loss processing.
Currently, Plamina is a doctoral candidate at the Developmental Neuroscience Lab at the Jacobs Center for Productive Youth Development at the University of Zurich. She will investigate the neural and behavioral correlates of language development and the link with socioemotional development in children and their parents. Additionally, Plamina will be involved in a meta-analysis study examining the effect of neural synchrony between children and their caregivers as a predictor of learning and cognitive outcomes.
