  • Faculty of Health Sciences

  • Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research

  • Dr Karen Caeyenberghs

    K. Caeyenberghs received her Master degree in Experimental Psychology in 2005 at the KULeuven, Belgium. She obtained her PhD in Biomedical Sciences in 2010 under supervision of Prof. S.P. Swinnen at the same university. She has revealed critical insights at the interface between brain structure, and function in relation to motor behaviour in children with traumatic brain injury. K. Caeyenberghs is now senior research fellow at the School of Psychology, Faculty of Health Sciences. She is a broadly experienced scientist who has become acquainted with a variety of medical imaging techniques, including functional MRI and diffusion MRI, to address prominent problems of motor and cognitive control in the daily life of patients. With this overarching interdisciplinary expertise K. Caeyenberghs has been able to perform innovative research, which resulted in a numerous articles. Her ultimate drive is to reveal which specific aspects of white matter change in response to pathology and training, and to determine to what extent structural networks are subject to neuroplastic changes.

  • Dr Francesco Foroni

    Dr. Foroni conducts research on the interplay between affective and cognitive processes involved in perception and judgments.

    His research agenda includes a growing line of research on perceptual, affective and cognitive processes involved in food choice. In collaboration with an interdisciplinary research network he is developing a research program with a novel approach to food research combining paradigms assessing implicit and explicit attitudes, decision making, and preference with the aim to directly apply the results to clinical and healthy populations. For instance, he is investigating how we categorises different types of food and which factors (e.g., implicit/explicit evaluations or individual characteristics) drive food/beverage preferences and choices.

    A second research line investigates how proprioceptive information about our own body (e.g., facial feedback) are at the base of emotion information processing and how this proprioceptive information guides our explicit judgments and fast implicit evaluative processes.

    His research is characterised by an integrated approach and has employed classical social cognitive behavioural methods together with electrophysiological and neuroscientific techniques also in healthy and clinical groups.
