After my studies in human movement sciences I obtained my Medical Degree. These two studies form a great combination in my PhD studies. Since February 2008 I started working as a physician at Altrecht Eating Disorders Rintveld. During these months I started setting up my PhD studies, focusing on hunger and satiety as well as on hyperactivity in Anorexia Nervosa patients. At the moment I am combining a psychiatric internship with PhD studies, combining clinical experience with scientific knowledge.
- Associations between neural correlates of visusal stimulus processing and set-shifting in ill and recovered women with anorexia nervosa.
- Altered food-cue processing in chronically ill and recovered women with anorexia nervosa.
- Longitudinal changes in the physical activity of adolescents with anorexia nervosa and their influence on body composition and leptin serum levels after recovery.
- Neuropsychological weaknesses in anorexia nervosa: set-shifting, central coherence, and decision making in currently ill and recovered women.
