Marije Vermeulen studied Clinical Child and Adolescent Studies at Leiden University and followed the research master’s programme 'Developmental Psychopathology in Education and Child Studies’. She obtained a clinical qualification (NVO basisaantekening diagnostiek) during a 10-month clinical internship at the Ambulatorium (now called LUBEC) of Leiden University. In 2012 she completed her research master.
Since December 2012 Marije has been working as a PhD candidate on a project called 'The learning brain: Relationship between sleep and learning in children'. This project is a collaboration between the Sleep & Cognition group of the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience (NIN) in Amsterdam, and the programme group of Clinical Neurodevelopmental Sciences at Leiden University.
Currently Marije is a lecturer at the programme group of Clinical Neurodevelopmental Sciences. In this position she is involved in various bachelor and master courses, including supervision of theses and clinical internships.
In a large number of studies a detrimental effect of sleep restriction has been found on learning, cognitive performance and behavioural functioning. Marije’s PhD project examined to what extent sleep affects cognition (sustained attention, memory and inhibition), mood, behaviour and underlying brain functions in children and adolescents. Several potentially influencing factors such as temperament has been included in the study.
