Research

My research focuses on physiological aspects of psychopathology (anxiety and depression). I am particularly interested in the interplay between activity of our autonomic nervous system and perseverative cognitive processes, like worrying and ruminating. In 2014 I received a Veni grant from the  Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) to examine whether stimulating the vagus nerve (a large nerve that forms part of the parasympathetic nervous system)  affects worrying, both in laboratory settings as well as in daily life.
