Nicole Ortiz, MSc.

PhD candidate


I have a bachelor’s degree in Behavioural Sciences from the Philippines, and I have a joint master’s degree in Neuroscience from Strasbourg (FR) and Freiburg (DE). For my PhD, I am studying GABAergic signalling in the Habenulo-Interpeduncular Nucleus pathway during aversive conditions.  


I have always been interested in studying the link between brain and behaviour, and how cultures and societies play a role in shaping them. I love traveling, and exploring different cultures through food. 


Here is a photo from my graduation (left).
