"It is critical to understand how the adolescent brain responds to expressions of emotion, as peers' emotional displays may exert a strong influence on subsequent behavior."


Jorien van Hoorn is an assistant professor at the unit Developmental and Educational Psychology of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University. 

She obtained her research master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Leiden University in 2013. During her research master, she worked as an intern in the Brain & Development lab on the large longitudinal BrainTime study. She wrote her thesis about the influence of pubertal maturation on reward-related processing in the adolescent brain. 

In her  PhD research, supervised by Eveline Crone, Eric van Dijk, and Carolien Rieffe, Jorien investigated the influence of peers on risky choices and social decisions in both healthy adolescents and adolescents with autism spectrum conditions.
