Research interests

Daria’s research interests focus on psychological mechanisms and factors of information acquisition. Her interests also relate to the studies of neurophysiological foundations of cognitive processes and the application of their results in learning (brain-based learning). Another research direction is the psychology of e-learning. Especially, the identification of features in cognitive processes functioning and information processing in digital environment. 

In the Lab

Participation in the development of the research design; conducting experiments using tDCS and EEG; statistical data analysis and results interpretation.
