Vincent holds a BSc in Biology and an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience. During his master internship at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour of the Radbout University Nijmegen, he investigated the effects of stress hormones on brain activation and memory.
In 2010, Vincent started his PhD at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus Center for Neuroeconomics (promotor: Prof. Ale Smidts). His research interests include emotional and social influences on economic decision making and consumer choice. Vincent's daily work at Erasmus Center for Neuroeconomics is in the lab of Dr. Alan Sanfey at the Donders Institute, where he combines behavioral experiments with brain imaging methods.
Recent work includes the influence of social status on how we perceive successes and failures, and neural processes while watching dynamic advertisements.
