Guillermo Borragán obtained his degree in Cognitive Psychology from the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain) in 2012. He is currently a PhD student supported by the PAI program (a BELSPO Research Network). He works under the supervision of Philippe Peigneux at the Neuropsychology and Functional Neuroimaging Research Unit (UR2NF) of CRCN. His PhD project aims to better understand the cognitive costs associated with the triggering of compensatory mechanisms in Multiple Sclerosis. To this end, he employs functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) as well as physiological and behavioral measures. He is also interested in the study of brain reorganization patterns of activation during the acquisition of motor expertise.
