Nerd, loves the brain even more than your average zombie, into etymology and reading, wants to explore information sampling in depression using neuro and computational methods.
Any man could, if he were so inclined, be the sculptor of his brain.
Nastasia Griffioen obtained her BSc in Psychology from Radboud University Nijmegen, followed by a Research MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from Leiden University. Before being appointed as a PhD-candidate at GEMH Lab, Nastasia spent little under two years gaining more practical experience conducting and managing research projects at the Donders Institute's Decision Neuroscience Lab. Having recently started her position at GEMH, she is still exploring which aspects of the clinical application of video games she will be addressing in her doctoral research, with hopes of incorporating some of her background in neuro and interest in modelling.
In this project, we aim to take a closer look at the way in which information is being sampled and integrated in individuals suffering from or at risk for depression. Since human beings are only able to perceive and process a limited amount of information, we have evolved to sample parts of information instead and attempt to draw accurate and workable conclusions based on the sample available to us. We have reason, however, to think that this process may be affected in depression, and aim to find out how exactly using methods such as behavioural computational modeling.
We’re slowly crawling towards the 'season to be merry', and in the spirit of positivity we’re going to take a look at 3 ways in which social media have created opportunities for our world (and us) to be better!
@GrowingUpGaming @GEMH_Lab I'm afraid I can't DM you (the option doesn't show up), but maybe it works the other way around?
