Postdoc research on self-regulation among adolescents mentioned on NeuroLabNL website
For my postdoc research at the VU University, I have been setting up an ambulatory study at a school to measure 24 hour autonomic nervous system activity among young adolescents (13-14 year-olds). The study has an ecological momentary assessment component in the form of a small iPod that prompts the adolescents to fill out a questionnaire every hour or so. This allows us to take onto account their behavior, emotions and social surroundings throughout the day. We will try to associate this to several components of self-regulation, such as executive functioning, emotion-regulation, impulsivity and self-control. This research is part of NeuroLabNL research line 4, which focuses on the application of wearable biosensors. My research is mentioned in the recent (Dutch) blog post Ready to wear.
