Simon Greipl

Member of JRC Neuro-cognitive Plasticity

Since August 2017, Simon Greipl has been a scientific researcher and PhD candidate in the junior research group Neuro-cognitive plasticity at the IWM. He is employed in the project “Benefits of a game-based cognitive interface for knowledge work” of the Leibniz-WissenschaftsCampus “Cognitive Interfaces”. In his dissertation, Simon Greipl examines aspects of “Game-based learning” from a neuro-functional and emotional perspective as well as the influences of different game-mechanics on conceptual numerical knowledge work.  

Simon Greipl studied psychology at the University of Salzburg (M.Sc. 2016). His master’s thesis dealt with the emergence of a neuro-functional reading network in 5 to 7 year old children. After that, he was a scientific employee at the University of Marburg for one year.
