Profile

Kayla Green is a research assistant in the SYNC lab. She is particularly interested in how emotional reactivity may lead to negative developmental trajectories in some and in positive outcomes in others. Stressors within the social environment and socioeconomic challenges may have an interacting effect on emotional reactivity and wellbeing. By examing the functional and structural development of brain regions during adolescence she hopes to identify important neural predictors of wellbeing later in life.

Currently, she examines the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the wellbeing of youth and students. This challenging period may cause difficulties for some adolescents, but may also be a…

Kayla Green is a research assistant in the SYNC lab. She is particularly interested in how emotional reactivity may lead to negative developmental trajectories in some and in positive outcomes in others. Stressors within the social environment and socioeconomic challenges may have an interacting effect on emotional reactivity and wellbeing. By examing the functional and structural development of brain regions during adolescence she hopes to identify important neural predictors of wellbeing later in life.

Currently, she examines the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the wellbeing of youth and students. This challenging period may cause difficulties for some adolescents, but may also be a window of opportunity for others. She investigates the interplay between emotional reactivity, environmental stressors (such as family stress and inequality of opportunity), and societal commitment.

Kayla has a background in psychology (Utrecht University, 2015). After obtaining her bachelor degree she continued with the research master Neuroscience & Cognition (2018) and the clinical master Neuropsychology (2017) at Utrecht University. She did her clinical internship at the Neurology and Geriatrics Department of Spijkenisse Medisch Centrum where she also obtained her BAPD (certificate in psychodiagnostics). She has previously worked as a research assistant at the Brain and Development Research Center (Leiden University).

Research interests: neural development - emotional reactivity - adolescence and young adulthood - wellbeing - risk and resilience - socioeconomic stressors
