Magdalena is a Neuroscience Ph.D. student at the Neuroimaging Group of the Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Gregorio Marañón of Madrid, Spain. Her research focus is to unveil the structural and functional plasticity of the human parental brain. Through longitudinal neuroimaging studies, she seeks to characterize the brain remodeling in both women and men during their transition into parenthood and determine how such adaptations can deviate from normality and cause mental health problems.
