Dr Heidrun Schultz is a postdoctoral researcher working with Dr Bernhard Staresina on episodic memory processing in the medial temporal lobe, specifically in the entorhinal cortex.


  • PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience (University Medical Center Hamburg)
  • Diplom (MSc equivalent) in Psychology (Dresden Technical University)


After obtaining her degree in psychology from Dresden Technical University, Dr Heidrun Schultz completed her PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University Medical Center Hamburg (supervised by Dr Jan Peters, Dr Tobias Sommer, and Prof. Christian Buechel). Here, she investigated the neural processes underlying material-specific memory retrieval using high-resolution fMRI and EEG. Following postdoctoral work in Hamburg with Dr Jan Peters and at Freie Universitaet Berlin with Prof. Hauke Heekeren, she secured a Marie Curie Fellowship to work on episodic memory processing in the human entorhinal cortex with Dr Bernhard Staresina at the University of Birmingham.
