Professor Developmental Neuropsychology

Faculty of Behavioral and Movement Sciences

Together with my group, I study the development of social cognition
(empathy, perspective taking, trust) in adolescence, and the role of the social
environment in this development. We investigate these processes at the level
of behaviour (questionnaires, neuropsychological tasks, observation) and the
neural mechanisms (fMRI and EEG).

Development of trust
