Summary
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,
  • creativity,
  • consciousness,
  • evolution,
  • cultural differences and
  • behavioural economics.
