RESIST – Research on Individual (Anti-)Social Trajectories

Antisocial behavior is costly for victims of these behaviors and society at large. Moreover, youth who display antisocial behavior are at risk for a wide range of problems. However, not all antisocial youth with the same initial risk arrive at the same outcome and even if they do, they often show different trajectories. Up to now, it remains unclear which underlying mechanisms might explain why some youth persist in showing antisocial behavior, whereas others do not. In my PhD project, I investigate three candidate mechanisms and their neurobiological underpinnings: self-concept, (vicarious) reward learning and social evaluation/aggression regulation.

Supervisors: Eveline CroneMarieke BosArne Popma and Lucres Nauta-Jansen.

My PhD project is affiliated with NeuroLabNL, a Dutch knowledge hub for Brain-, Cognitive and Behavioral research and the consortium GUTS (Growing up together in society).
