IRIS BEVERS | Trainee
Iris Bevers obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences at the Radboud University Nijmegen. Iris is now a first year student of the neuroscience master from biomedical sciences, and is currently joining Roshan’s lab as an intern. In her master thesis she investigates how striatal dopamine signaling modulates cognitive control and interacts with proximity during action selection under supervision of Andrew Westbrook. She focuses in particular on the influence of subjective economic offer value, decision difficulty and choice conflict on pupil dilation as a putative marker of dopamine release and relatedly, if this dopamine-related pupil dilation modulates the effect of proximity / gaze on choice.
