Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory
Neuroscience Institute, CUCBA
University of Guadalajara

Dr. Gómez studied for her B.A. degree in Psychology in the Faculty of Behavioral Sciences at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico, where she graduated in 1990. She then worked for 5 years at the Center for Childhood Development at that University in the design and application of early stimulation programs. Later she was employed as a teacher in the area of Mental Deficiencies at the Center for Special Education and Psychopedagogical Attention No. 1 of the government of the State of Mexico, and as a therapist in the area of Psychology at that same Center, where she attended children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral problems. She also worked at the Integrated Center for Infant Rehabilitation, A.C. in Guadalajara as a Full-time Professor in the Area of Early Stimulation. There, she worked with children suffering from Cerebral Palsy. She has been active in clinical practice in evaluating and attending children with language, behavioral and learning difficulties, and has assessed cognitive deterioration in older adults.

In 1997, Dr. Gómez began Graduate studies in the Behavioral Sciences with a specialization in Neurosciences at the Neuroscience Institute (University of Guadalajara), where she earned her Ph.D. in 2001. During her Doctoral studies she carried out two principal inquiries. The first concerned the impact of extrinsic motivation on the performance of working memory tasks in young adults; while the second dealt with visuo-verbal memory in children with reading-related learning disorders and their electrophysiological correlates. In 2003, she joined the staff at the Neuroscience Institute as a Full-time Professor-Researcher assigned to the Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory, where she has participated as an Associate Researcher in various scientific projects and developed a line of inquiry focused primarily on the behavioral and electrophysiological study of reading- and mathematics-related learning disorders. She directs research projects funded by Mexico’s National Science and Technology Council (CONACYT) and PROMEP, and has directed various B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. theses.

Dr. Gómez has been a member of Mexico’s National System of Researchers since 2002, and has participated in the publication of various scientific studies in national and international journals.
