Kiki Zanolie

Kiki Zanolie is a postdoctoral researcher/assistant professor interested in the role of social status in social rejection and risk-taking. She studies these processes from a neurocognitive developmental perspective using techniques such as Event Related Potentials (ERPs) and fMRI. In 2012 Kiki obtained her PhD in Biological and Cognitive Psychology from Erasmus University Rotterdam, where she used ERPs and eye-tracking to study, from an embodied cognition viewpoint, how people represent abstract concepts by means of conceptual metaphors. Kiki has received a personal grant from the AXA Research Fund to investigate the neural correlates of developmental differences in social cognition during social rejection and risk-taking.
