Currently I am doing research in age-related cognitive decline and different types of cognitive enhancement. I am specifically interested in meditation or mindfulness interventions within a large study among elderly citizens in the city of Leiden. I study different styles of meditation that may combat age-related cognitive decline and effects of these practices on attention and executive control processes, neurobiological mechanisms and implicated genetic markers. Other research interests include but are not restricted to:
- cognitive science of religion,
- cultural differences and
- behavioural economics.
- Faculteit der Sociale Wetenschappen
- Instituut Psychologie
- Cognitieve Psychologie
- Bibliotheek Technisch Medewerker
