Research Master's Thesis Award for Elise Kortink

Elise Kortink won the research master thesis prize from the Institute of Psychology, with her thesis “Community structure analysis of rejection sensitive personality profiles: a common neural response to social evaluative threat”. With her thesis, Elise demonstrated that she was able to use complex analysis techniques (e.g., EEG time-frequency analysis, community structure analysis) and report/interpret the results in a clear fashion. Elise’s thesis contributes to our understanding of neural correlates of social evaluative feedback processing in those individuals sensitive to social rejection. Elise’s thesis is of exceptional quality and we are very proud of Elise that she has won this prize. Congrats!!!
