Currently I am doing research in age-related cognitive decline and different types of cognitive enhancement. I am specifically interested with meditation or mindfulness interventions within a large study among elderly citizens in the city of Leiden. I study different styles of meditation that may combat age-related cognitive decline and effects of these practices on attention and executive control processes, neurobiological mechanisms and implicated genetic markers. Other research interests include but are not restricted to: cognitive science of religion, creativity, consciousness, evolution, cultural differences and behavioral economics.
My promotors are: Guido Band and Bernhard Hommel
Present on Monday, Tuesday and on Wednesdaymornings.
