The research in the Cognition and Plasticity laboratory focuses on (the neural basis of) core cognitive functions, such as attention, and the plasticity of these functions. What are the mechanisms that allow us to select, suppress, and become aware of information in the environment? How does prior experience or mental training as cultivated by meditation influence these mechanisms that adaptively control information processing? Our methodological repertoire includes EEG, fMRI, tDCS and behavioral testing.
The lab just relocated to the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, January 2019!
