Berrak Yetimler, Ph.D.

Berrak received her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Istanbul University, Turkey. After obtaining her B.Sc. degree in Biology, her research in master’s studies (Middle East Technical University, Turkey) mainly focused on behavioral and biochemical aspects of learning and memory. Her Ph.D. research on neuroimmunology involved combining molecular and immunological techniques for different types of neurological diseases in both laboratory and clinical settings.

Receiving a scholarship from the Turkish Scientific and Technological Research Council (TUBITAK), Berrak has recently joined Dr. Alexandre Lehmann’s laboratory as a postdoctoral fellow. Using neurophysiological and neuroendocrine markers, she will be working on a project studying the therapeutic effects of low frequency sound waves (known as Vibroacoustic Therapy (VAT)) on stress recovery. This project aims to determine the possible benefits of VAT on physiological and hormonal levels. The findings will also contribute to the understanding of the tactile effects of sounds on the human body and cognition.
