Senior researcher


Research interests

I am a senior researcher at GGZ Friesland and the UMCG's Interdisciplinary Center Psychopathology and Emotion regulation (ICPE http://www.icpe.nl/), a research center that performs high-quality psychiatric research at the crossroads of various disciplines. My research is located at the junction of Psychology, Psychiatry, and Neuroscience with a primary focus on emotion processing. My ambition is to elucidate psychobiological processes that are involved in the onset and course of psychiatric disorders in general, and anxiety and mood disorders in particular. To this end, I perform my research in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) studies, longitudinal population cohorts (TRAILS http://www.trails.nl/), as well as in in-depth idiographic studies (n = 1, iLab http://www.ilab-psychiatrie.nl/) to bring the individual person back into focus. Heterogeneity between individuals and person-specific variability are not a nuisance, but important measures of interest.

Alongside my work as a researcher in psychiatry I pursue research and teaching in scientific integrity and reproducibility issues. In terms of research, I have co-authored a couple of publications on reporting and citation biases in the scientific literature. In terms of teaching, I have co-developed an animation on reporting and citation biases, which is freely available online. We use this animation in the scientific integrity course for PhD students of the University of Groningen and in research training for clinical psychologists. I also try raising awareness about reproducibility issues by writing blogs on my own experiences as an early career researcher for junior scientists and the general public (www.jojannekebastiaansen.com).
