Liset M de la Prida graduated in Physics in the University of La Habana (1994) and obtained her PhD in Neuroscience in 1998 (Alicante, Spain). Along early years, she hold visiting positions in the laboratories of David Brown (UCL, UK), Leon Lagnado (MRC, UK) and Steven J. Schiff (George Mason University, USA) that allowed her to acquire a broad background and expertise to study brain function. After postdoctoral training with Richard Miles in Paris (ICM), she became Group Leader at the Instituto Cajal, CSIC, in 2008 and Full Research Professor in 2021. The main goal of her lab is to understand how the dynamics of hippocampal microcircuits support memory function.
Liset is a leading expert in the study of physiological and pathological oscillations, with experience in developing groundbreaking neurotechnologies and the application of computational & machine learning tools. She has participated in Scientific Advisory Boards and/or Evaluation Committees of several institutions, including the CRC (Bonn, Germany), C-BRAINS (Paris, France) and CINAC (Madrid, Spain). Liset currently serves as scientific Editor for specialized journals such as Journal of Neuroscience Methods, eLife and eNeuro, and has commissioning duties in the American Epilepsy Society (Task Force Working Groups on Behavior and Networks), the Spanish Society of Neuroscience (Executive Board, 2011-2015) and FENS (Member of the Programme Committee FENS 2022, and Chair of the Programme Committee FENS 2024).
