Modern pain neuroscience applied to pain in breast cancer survivors: a randomized clinical trial of pain neuroscience education combined with exercise therapy. Vrije Universiteit Brussel
During survivorship, surveillance for recurrence is a top priority.
However, health caretakers and patients are at risk of neglecting other aspects of their health status such as pain that can have a big impact on the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and healthcare costs. One out of three breast cancer survivors (BCS) will face pain complaints long after ...
A modern neuroscience approach to chronic spinal pain: pain neuroscience education combined with cognition-targeted motor control training Ghent University
In this project we want to implement a modern neuroscience approach to chronic spinal pain. The main objective is to investigate the effectiveness of modern neuroscience approach to chronic spinal pain versus evidence-based physiotherapy to reduce pain and dysfunction in patients with Flemish CSP

A neuroscience approach to prison experience: On the influence of prison on the sense of agency and empathy for pain among (ex-)inmates and prison guards. Ghent University
At the end of the prison sentence, former inmates are expected to reintegrate the social system. However, past research and criminological data highlight that prison sentences are not an effective mean for preventing recidivism. This project aims to investigate, with a social neuroscience approach, the potential influence of the coercive and restrictive nature of prison on two neurocognitive processes related to decision-making: The sense of ...
Expert deep learning in the human brain: a cognetive computational neuroscience perspective KU Leuven
The human mind has been trained intensively in a wide variety of
complex information processing tasks. In addition, many individuals
develop expertise in specific domains such as chess or microscopy.
Previous studies have supported the hypothesis that expert learners
do not develop super-powers, such as a larger working-memory
capacity, but instead develop a more efficient information processing
that is domain ...
The History of Mankind is plagued by immoral acts of obedience that have caused the loss of many lives, of entire cultures and civilizations. Regrettably, there is a lack of research investigating the neuro-cognitive processes that play a role in preventing individuals from complying with immoral orders. By using methods from an array of disciplines, I here offer to investigate for the first time this question in a highly ecological ...
