Peter Simor



Peter is a psychologist with a particular interest in the neurocognitive aspects of sleep and dreaming. He is affiliated to the Cognitive Science Department of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. During his PhD he examined the neuropsychological functions and electrophysiological features of subjects with frequent nightmares (idiopathic nightmare disorder). Currently, he works with psychometric tools, behavioral and neuroscientific methos (mainly EEG) to study different aspects of chronotype, sleep EEG oscillations and the role of sleep in emotional and cognitive information processing. 

During his stay at the CRCN, Peter collaborates with Philippe Peigneux on a research project entitled: “The effect of lateralized rhythmic acoustic stimulation during sleep on sleep specific EEG oscillations and waking cognitive functions” (Aug-Dec 2015).
