Myrthe Kamphof is a teacher and PHD candidate at the Institute of Education and Child Studies, Leiden University. Her research primarily focuses on investigating neurocognitive profiles, behavior and psychopathology in children with rare genetic syndromes, using measures such as clinical interviews, neurocognitive tasks and physiological parameters.
Myrthe Kamphof started her bachelor degree in Child and Educational sciences at Leiden University in 2016. As part of her bachelor degree, she did her minor in Cognitive Neuroscience at Macquarie University in Sydney.
In 2019 she started her research master Neuroscience and Cognition at Utrecht University. That same year she did a research internship at the department of neonatology in the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital, where she wrote a thesis about Neonatal intensive care unit related stress and brain development, and the effect of Kangaroo care in extremely preterm infants. In 2020 she decided to start a clinical master’s degree Child and Educational sciences (Orthopedagogiek) at Leiden University.
She did a clinical internship at the psychosocial department at the Emma Children’s Hospital in Amsterdam UMC. Furthermore, she wrote her thesis at the TRIXY study at the department of Clinical Neurodevelopmental sciences at Leiden University, where she investigated the effect of a neurocognitive intervention on social cognitive functioning in children with extra X or Y chromosome.
Myrthe her research primarily focuses on investigating neurocognitive profiles, behavior and psychopathology in children with rare genetic syndromes, using measures such as clinical interviews, neurocognitive tasks and physiological parameters. Her research is part of the ProMiSe project; a multicenter and multidisciplinary study exploring defective Prefrontal development in Mendelian Syndromes within a (pre-) clinical integrative approach. The aim of the ProMiSe project is to improve our understanding of biological mechanisms underpinning psychiatric and neurocognitive aspects of rare genetic syndromes and based on this, develop tailored intervention strategies.
