My research focuses on the effects of expectancy learning manipulations on the immune response. I have a special interest in the psychophysiological response to physical sensations such as itch and how this response can be altered using classical conditioning mechanisms. Furthermore, my research project aims to understand which psychological, neurobiological and genetic determinants predict stronger expectancy learning effects.
