Anne Cuperus is a lecturer in neuropsychology at the Department of Health, Medical and Neuropsychology of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University.

For a number of years, Anne also worked as a psychologist and at an IT company where, among other things, the applications for his research were developed.

  • The use of VR to simulate exposure to psychological trauma in healthy individuals for research purposes.
  • The use of VR to affect physical activity by means of a novel kind of perceptual illusion.
