N I C O L E R E I N H E I M E R
I have obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Research Master degree in Cognitive Neuroscience in Nijmegen. During my Bachelor’s studies in Psychology at Radboud University, I focused on courses on the brain, as well as early brain development. For my Bachelor thesis, I conducted research on surprise and model updating on babies and toddlers. Afterwards I specialised in the topics perception, action and control during my master’s and developed an interest in brain imaging research in combination with social behaviour and disorders. During my master’s, I investigated resting state functional connectivity in relation to compulsivity in children and adolescents with Autism and OCD.
Nicole has not yet published any peer-reviewed papers.
Currently I am assisting with ongoing experiments in the Decision Neuroscience Laboratory. My main tasks involve collecting fMRI data. One of my tasks, for instance, is to assist with the data collection of an experiment on information sampling in trust decisions, conducted by Ili.
As I am very interested in research on social behaviour, my goal is to get an insight into doing research on different areas of decision making. Additionally, I aim to gain experiences conducting experiments with adult participants.
Next to working in the lab, I enjoy spending time outside, going hiking and riding on horseback. Additionally, I like reading books and practicing the martial art Capoeira.
