PhD Defense of Lisette Schmidt

Lisette SchmidtOn Tuesday 17th of November at 15:45, Lisette Schmidt will defend her thesis named Attentional Modulation by Signals of threat in the Auditorium of the Vrije Universiteit. Lisette’s thesis describes how the role of emotion (and in particular experiences of threat) can change the way people deploy their attention to their surroundings. Lisette found that threatening stimuli automatically capture attention and are therefore prioritized over less threatening stimuli. We congratulate Lisette with this wonderful performance!
