Short CV

 Janna Marie Bas-Hoogendam is a post-doctoral researcher at the unit Developmental and Educational Psychology of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University. 

She studied Medicine at the Erasmus Medical Center (2003-2007) and obtained her research master’s degree in Neuroscience and Cognition at Utrecht University in 2009 (cum laude). During her research master, she worked as an intern at the Rudolf Magnus Institute of Neuroscience (UMC Utrecht) and the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology (VU University Medical Center Amsterdam). During both internships, she used functional neuroimaging to investigate the human brain. In addition, she wrote a master thesis on the effects of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS). Following her masters, Janna Marie worked as a research assistant at the Department of Psychiatry of the UMC Utrecht, investigating the development of the adolescent brain with a focus on reward processing. 

After working in the Cognitive Neuroimaging Lab in Birmingham, Janna Marie started her PhD project in March 2013. This project, supervised by Michiel Westenberg, Nic van der Wee and Henk van Steenbergen, is embedded within the Leiden Family Study on Social Anxiety (www.leidenfamilylab.nl). The focus of her work is on profiling endophenotypes of social anxiety disorder using structural and functional MRI. 

In addition, Janna Marie is co-chair of the ENIGMA-Anxiety working group (https://enigma.ini.usc.edu/ongoing/enigma-anxiety/) and involved in the NESDA study (https://www.nesda.nl). 


The Leiden Family Lab study on Social Anxiety Disorder (LFLSAD) aims to investigate the neurobiological genetic vulnerability to develop social anxiety disorder. The study investigates patients with social anxiety as well as their family members of two generations.
