The fascination of data and networks
In her studies Sarah concentrated on the field of neuropsychology. "I was particularly interested in research into the connections between brain and behaviour," she says. During a course-related internship, she gained some initial insights into the evaluation of MRI images and EEG data. "For example, we studied the brains of chess players and compared some parameters of the grey and white matter with those of people who had not practised any special skills." Even back then, Sarah – a native of Berne – was impressed by the extent to which the networks and structures of the brain can be influenced by training, concentration exercises or meditation.
