Berna Güroğlu is an associate professor (UHD) at the Brain and Development Lab at Leiden University. She received her PhD in Developmental Psychology at Radboud University Nijmegen. Her research focuses on brain development and the neural processes involved in social and emotional development across childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood. She examines the neurocognitive development of social decision-making using various economic exchange paradigms and magnetic resonance imaging techniques. She is particularly interested in the role of peer relationships in social functioning. Her recent work is funded by an NWO Veni grant.
