Barbara Braams received her M.Sc. in cognitive neuroscience from the University of Amsterdam. She is now a Ph.D. candidate at the Developmental and Educational Psychology Unit of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University. In her Ph.D. project, supervised by Professor  Eveline Crone, she investigates social-emotional development in adolescence, focusing on ventral striatum responses to (vicarious) rewards.
