Our symposium How motivational and learning processes shape pain and avoidance was accepted for the ESCAN meeting in Leiden (19-22 July 2018). I will present my recent pharmacological fMRI work on pain avoidance learning.
I moved to the University of Amsterdam to investigate reinforcement learning and decision making processes, and how these change during development, together with Hilde Huizenga and others!
Our symposium Dillemas in the face of uncertainty: Computational
approaches to adaptive behavior is accepted for the ICON meeting in Amsterdam (5-8 August 2017)

affective learning is accepted for publication:

Our paper examining the role of the human catecholamine systems in learning rate regulation is accepted for publication:
