Sanja Josef Golubic
Sanja Josef Golubic is a senior research and teaching assistant (postdoctoral fellow) at the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb. Her academic qualifications include a Ph.D. in cognitive neurodynamics and M.Sc. in theoretical physics. Despite a short scientific career, she has made outstanding achievements in the field of neuroscience. Her first scientific publication was nominated for the Nightingale Prize for best Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing paper in 2011. The latest highlight contributions to the field include resolving 30-years long enigma of neural network underlying auditory sensory gating; disclosing a new, fast cortical pathway which links prefrontal cortex to primary sensory areas within first 100 milliseconds after stimulation, and finally revealing a discrete individual biomarker of Alzheimer’s disease with the potential to detect the disease in its preclinical stage.
