Dr Vera Mateus

Dr Vera Mateus is a Post-Doc fellow in the Graduate Program on Developmental Disorders and the Cognitive and Social Neuroscience Lab, at the Mackenzie Presbyterian University, São Paulo, Brazil.
Dr Mateus’ research interests are focused on infant and children’s sociocognitive development, in typical and at-risk samples (e.g., prematurity), and the influence of parent-infant/child interactions. Currently, Dr Mateus uses functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to evaluate infant’s neural processing of social stimuli (e.g., touch, perception of motor actions) and its contribution to socio-emotional development during the first year of life.

Dr Vera Mateus joins us as a speaker at the Brainbox Initiative Conference 2020, with a talk entitled Neural processing of observed and executed motor actions in 6-month-old infants: An fNIRS study.
