Mariama Dione

Mariama Dione, PhD, defended her Psychology thesis in 2013. Her thesis concerned the role a specific class of cognitive functions (the executive functions) in the production of rhythms. Since 2014, she is post doc researcher in the group of Pr. Johan Wessberg. She uses the microneurography technique to record the activity of the afferent fibers (sensitive to mechanical stimulation) innervating the glabrous skin in humans. The objective of her experiments is to gain a better understanding of natural touch mechanisms in humans, for example, when daily textures are touched by the participants using active movements (active touch).
