At Trier University, Jun.-Prof. Dr. Siri-Maria Kamp conducts resarch and teaches classes on neurocognition of memory and attention, the influence of acute stress on neurocognitive function, (neuro)cognitive aging and cognition in populations at risk for developing dementia.
Before joining Trier University in 2017 as a junior professor (assistant professor), Ms. Kamp gained research experience on different topics and in different institutions. After earning her B.Sc. in Cognitive Science at University of Osnabrück (2007), Ms. Kamp entered a combined Masters- and Ph.D. Psychology programme at University of South Florida in Tampa, FL, USA. During her graduate studies in the Cognitive Psychophysiology Laboratory of Prof. Dr. Emanuel Donchin, Ms. Kamp studied the functional significance of different components of the event-related potential (ERP), as well as their occurrence in episodic learning tasks with different kinds of stimuli and under different strategy instructions. Moreover, Ms. Kamp worked with the P300-based Brain Computer Interface, an application that allows users to communicate with their environment without relying on muscle activity.
In 2013, Dr. Kamp earned her Ph.D. and subsequently returned to Germany to expand on her research experience on the neuro-cognition of episodic memory as a Postdoc in the International Research Training Group (IRTG) „Adaptive Minds“ and in the Experimental Neuropsychology unit led by Prof. Dr. Axel Mecklinger at Saarland University.
In her free time, Jun.-Prof. Dr. Kamp enjoys spending time with her family, especially with her son Nils.
