Sophie Sweijen is a third-year research master student in Developmental Psychology at Leiden University. After obtaining her bachelor’s degree, she wanted to focus on the brain and behavior during adolescent development. Particularly, Sophie is interested in the social context of adolescents, for example how adolescents learn from each other and interact with others. She assisted in the fMRI study investigating social learning in adolescence and is writing her master’s thesis about this topic. As of August 2019, she is working as a student-assistent in the Brain and Development lab helping with an fMRI project concerning risk taking in children with ADHD and with a behavioral study to peer relations in social learning.
