More information about Laura van der Aar

Laura van der Aar is a PhD candidate at the unit Developmental and Educational Psychology of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University.

Laura studied Developmental Psychology at Leiden University and obtained her research master’s degree in 2014. During her research master, she worked as an intern at Curium-LUMC (child and adolescent psychiatry) where she assisted in a validation study of questionnaires used in Juvenile Detention Centers. She wrote her thesis in the Brain and Development Lab of Eveline Crone, focusing on the neural correlates of creativity training in adolescents.

Following her masters, she worked in the Brain and Development lab as a teaching and research associate.  She assisted in different research projects in the lab, such as the Braintime project. This longitudinal study started three years ago and follows almost 300 children and adolescents in their (brain) development.

In February 2016 she started her PhD project supervised by Prof. Dr. Eveline Crone and in collaboration with Jochem Spaans and Renske van der Cruijsen. This longitudinal project focuses on the neural signature of self-concept development in adolescence and is funded by a VICI grant from NWO. In collaboration with Foundation Gap Year (Stichting Breekjaar), Laura will investigate the relation between self-concept development and academic choices/success.
