BRITT LAMBREGTS | PhD
Britt Lambregts obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences and a Master’s degree in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Radboud University Nijmegen. For the Cognitive Neuroscience Research Master she did her one-year internship with Ruben van den Bosch on the role of striatal dopamine in reward- versus punishment-based learning. After her internship, Britt stayed in the lab as a research assistant for Esther Aarts, Joost Wegman and Claudia van Dun for one year. As part of her research assistant ship she worked on two projects, focusing on the neurocognitive mechanisms controlling satiation with Joost and the effect of nutritional status on the neural development of spatial cognition together with Claudia.
Britt is now pursuing a PhD under supervision of Marieke van der Schaaf where she is investigating the neural mechanisms of cancer-related fatigue as PhD candidate. To this end, she is using behavioral testing, neuroimaging, psychopharmacology and computational modelling in cancer patients, survivors and healthy subjects.
