Neurocognitive Psychology at the University of Trier: Team

Group picture July 4th, 2022

Dr. Siri-Maria Kamp

Dr. Siri-Maria Kamp is an assistant professor ("Juniorprofessorin") at the University of Trier. She is fascinated by human neurocognition, with a particular interest in memory. Dr. Kamp has years of experience in research on the basic, neurocognitive mechanisms of memory and related cognitive functions, and changes therein through contextual factors like affect and throughout the lifespan. In this research, she uses various methods from experimental psychology (experimental manipulations; memory modeling) and neuroscience (EEG/event-related potentials). 

More recently, she became more strongly engaged in efforts to transfer knowledge from basic memory research to clinical practice. In the context of these efforts, she has developed a research and teaching collaboration with the Median Rehabilitation Centre in Bernkastel-Kues (Germany), in the context of which she works and conducts research with patients with acquired brain injuries and neurological diseases.

In December 2020, Ricarda joined the team of the Neurocognitive Psychology Unit as a doctoral researcher. Her research interests include episodic memory, its neural mechanisms and changes across the life span, as well as the nature of memory difficulties in clinical depression.


M.Sc. Luisa Knopf

Luisa Knopf completed her Bachelor's and Master's degree in Psychology (2015-2020) at Trier University, where she was also a student research assistant in the Neurocognitive Psychology Unit starting in 2017.

In May 2022, she joined our research group as doctoral researcher. Her research interests lie in episodic memory mechanisms and its changes across the life span. Furthermore, she examines influences of genetic factors and of psychosocial stress on memory encoding and retrieval processes.

M.Sc. Lisa Henrich

Lisa Henrich completed her Bachelor's and Master's degree in Psychology (2015-2023) at Trier University and joined our team in 2022 as an intern and student research assistant.

After completing her Master's degree, she began a position as a research assistant. Her research interests lie in the mechanisms underlying basic patterns in episodic memory (e. g. the survival processing and animacy effect), as well as modifications of these effects due to cognitive aging, acquired brain injuries and neurological diseases.
