Curriculum Vitae

For more information:


Currently, Bregtje is interested in the impact of social connectedness on mental wellbeing. A lack of social connectedness creates a risk to mental distress. More specifically, she is interested in the buffering hypothesis of social support on stress responses. Her research combines behavioral, psychophysiological and neuroimaging methods. In addition, she aims to conduct clinically relevant research that could further enhance our understanding of mental health disorders and to inform their treatment and prevention.
