Short CV

Sarah Burke is a post-doctoral researcher at the unit of Developmental and Educational Psychology of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University.

For her PhD project she studied sex differences in brain function and brain structure in children and adolescencts with gender dysphoria and also followed them to investigate the effects of cross-sex hormone treatments on the brain in transgender youth. After her PhD project at the VU university medical centre in Amsterdam, she moved to Stockholm for a post doc position at Karolinska Institute to study the neural correlates of own body- and self perception in cis- and transgender groups.

After that project Sarah joined the Brain and Development research centre, being involved in the longitudinal "Brainlinks" study on brain development in relation to prosocial behavior during adolescence.

Research interests

Within Brainlinks Sarah is involved in an fMRI study in which perceived self-other boundaries are manipulated by means of movement synchronization, and the effects on trust behavior are tested. She is also involved in developing a new self-evaluation parenting fMRI task targeting the parents of adolescent participants.

Within a different project called "Self Concept", Sarah studies how daily mood swings in adolescents are assoicated with changes in functional brain connectivity.
