Marie Leyssens

I am a master’s student in Psychology: Theory and Research at KU Leuven. Supplementary to this master’s, I am visiting GHEP Lab to gain knowledge about psychophysiology and the human brain. Last year, I completed my MSc in Clinical Psychology specializing in chronic pain and sleep problems. I am highly interested in neurotransmitters, psychopathology (especially addiction, PTSD) and the limbic system of the brain.

During my visit, I have the opportunity to participate in two projects that investigate the impact of resonance breathing and tDCS on stress reactivity and the intervariability between subjects of tDCS effects on cognitive performance.
