Luisa, holds a MSc (Research) in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Amsterdam.

PhD student working at Leiden University on a project under Supervision of Pfof. Bernhard Hommel and in collaboration with NUDZ to develop VR technology for facilitating effective mindfulness. In her PhD project, which is part of the ERC-funded Meta Control project of Bernhard Hommel, she is currently investigating how metacontrol affects the interplay between so-called persistence and flexibility. Psychedelics are one of the tools by which we can learn about this process.

VR games facilitating effective mindfulness training (workshop)

We would like to conduct a VR workshops featuring different mindfulness games. With the help of the participants of the conference, we would like to conduct a short research assessing most effective VR environment. Thanks to applied biofeedback the user will also be able to observe changes in their own heart beat coupled with changes in their breathing technique.
