Guillén Fernández is professor for cognitive neuroscience. He studies the brain basis of memory, emotion, and their interaction. He applies an interdisciplinary approach integrating cognitive neuroimaging, genetics, pharmacology and diverse clinical disciplines. His research is fundamental in nature, but with an explicit aim to improve education by neuroscientific insight in learning processes and to enable personalized care in psychiatry by providing mechanistic insight in stress-related pathophysiology. Guillén Fernández is fellow of the Royal Dutch Academy of Art and Sciences (KNAW), the Academia Europaea and the Memory Disorder Research Society. He received the Richard-Jung Award of the German Society for Clinical Neurophysiology, the Vici Award of the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), the Radboud Science Award, and an Advanced Investigator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC).
