Jaume Ferrer Lalanza

Postdoctoral fellow

Job description

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the group: Behavioral and Translational Neuroscience. My research interest is the role of lifestyle (exercise and food) on brain function and health. Nowadays, I am a Marie Curie researcher (MSCA-IF) with the project: REBOST: "Does excessive junk food consumption change the way the brain reward system processes intrinsic rewards?" I am also working on the Helse Nord funded project: “The risks of excessive junk food consumption on the brain reward system. A translational study ”.
