Rosa Hof, Bachelor student
Neuroscience of Addiction Lab and to learn more about the underlying neural mechanisms of cannabis addiction. During my internship I will write my thesis on the relationship between cannabis addiction and impulsivity. I always have been very interested in addiction so I hope to gain some fundamental knowledge on cannabis addiction and hope to discover if doing research on addiction is something I would like to do in the future.
Femke Tjebbes, Bachelor student
My name is Femke and I am in my final year of the bachelor Psychobiology at the University of Amsterdam. In the coming five months I will be an intern at de NOFA lab while writing my thesis. Since I’ve always had an interest in the neural mechanisms of addiction, I am very grateful for this internship and looking forward to learning a lot more about the causes and consequences of cannabis addiction. During my internship, I will write my thesis and focus on the effects of cognitive control on the severity of someone’s addiction. Additionally, I hope to get a better understanding of what it is like to work as a researcher and perhaps get a better idea of what I would like to do in the future.
Puck Rietveld, Student Assistant
My name is Puck and I am in my third and last year of the bachelor Psychobiology at the University of Amsterdam. My interest lies broadly in the field of psychopathology. I would like to contribute to a further understanding and a better treatment of conditions such as addiction, anxiety and OCD. That is why I am looking forward to complete my bachelor with an internship at the Neuroscience of Addiction Lab. During my time as an intern, I will be investigating the relationship between cannabis use (disorder) and generalized anxiety disorder and how cognitive functions relate to these disorders. I’m excited to gain more knowledge and experience in this work field and to work alongside like-minded individuals!
r finishing my bachelor project I continued to work as a research assistant at the NOFA lab.
Sanne Heijink, Student Assistant
I’m Sanne and I am finishing my last year of the Bachelor Psychobiology with an internship at the NOFA lab. I am grateful to be able to help with the ongoing study during the Corona pandemic. For my final thesis I would like to investigate the relationship between the Corona pandemic and its countermeasures, and cannabis usage. I hope this internship will help me train both my practical and writing skills. Additionally, I hope it will help me explore the possibilities for my future, as I do not know what kind of Master’s I would like to do or what kind of profession I would like to have.
After finishing my bachelor project I continued to work as a research assistant at the NOFA lab.
