Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper psychopathy is analysed computationally by creating a temporal-causal network model. The network model was designed using knowledge from Cognitive and Social Neuroscience and simulates the internal neural circuit for moral decision making. Among others, empathy and fear are considered to affect the decision making. This model provides...


Projects (2)
I am currently performing Neurogenetic research into the causes of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) for my first masters internship. During this project, I use bioinformatics tools to data mine RNAsequencing datasets.
Archived project
I studied Lifestyle Informatics, a variant of Artificial Intelligence, with a focus on psychology and neuroscience at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam. For my bachelor's thesis is researched how the brains of psychopaths differ from healthy individuals using neuroscientific literature and created a temporal-causal network to represent the decision-making process in a situation of moral judgment for psychopaths.
