Maud Grol

Postdoctoral Research Associate

I am interested in understanding the cognitive and emotional processes that underlie both affective disorders and addictive behaviour.

I focus on how biases in information processing for emotional and food-related information may be underlying emotional vulnerability and appetitive behaviour. Moreover, I am interested in how cognitive training can modify such biases and potentially change behaviour. The aim is to investigate the impact of cognitive training interventions on emotion regulation, reward sensitivity, and inhibitory control.

In my research I take a multidisciplinary approach using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in combination with behavioural and subjective measures in healthy individuals.
