Marieke Jepma studied cognitive psychology at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands, and cognitive neuroscience at the University of York, UK. She obtained her PhD at Leiden University, the Netherlands, in May 2011, on a thesis titled “Arousal, exploration and the locus coeruleus-norepinephrine system”. She then spent 3.5 years as a postdoc at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she studied the cognitive and neural mechanisms by which psychological factors influence physical pain. In 2015, she returned to Leiden University with a VENI grant to examine the role of neuromodulators, such as dopamine, in pain-avoidance learning.
