Research by Henk van Steenbergen

My research focuses on the effects of motivation and affect on executive function and goal-directed behavior using a wide variety of behavioural, physiological, and neuroimaging methods. In addition, I am interested in methodological innovation, which has resulted in contributions such as The E-Primer (the first introduction book to E-Prime®; www.e-primer.com) and the Qualtrics Reaction Time Engine (www.qrtengine.com).
