Anna van Duijvenvoorde

Associate Professor
Leiden University


Anna van Duijvenoorde’s research examines how adolescent’s decision making and learning is shaped by social context. She uses behavioral assessments, fundamental models, and functional neuroimaging to answer questions such as, why do peers increase adolescent risk-taking, and how can adolescents be motivated for school. She regularly works together with academics from other disciplines to understand how findings on adolescent behavior and brain development relate to youth law, youth safety and social resilience.
