Personal profile

Biography

Ines Murner-Lavanchy is a paediatric neuropsychologist who obtained her PhD in neuropsychology at the Division of Neuropaediatrics, Development and Rehabilitation, Children’s University Hospital Bern, Switzerland in 2014. Her PhD investigated 7 – 12 year-old very preterm and term-born children within the NEMO (NEuropsychology and meMOry) study, led by Professor Regula Everts. Her research was focused on analysing brain structure and function in relation to cognitive abilities, by examining language and working memory using fMRI as well as cortical thickness and volumetric brain analyses. She was also involved with studies assessing the cognitive and neural effects of two different memory training approaches in very preterm children.

She has lectured in the areas of cognitive and neuropsychology and worked clinically as a paediatric neuropsychologist. She has previously held a position as a post-doctoral researcher for the NEMO adolescent follow-up study and the Support Centre for Advanced Neuroimaging (SCAN), at the Department of Neuroradiology, University Hospital of Bern.

Her areas of interest include typical and atypical cognitive and brain development, interventions, environmental and personal factors influencing development as well as advanced neuroimaging methods.
