Henk van Steenbergen is an assistant professor at the Cognitive
Psychology Unit, University of Leiden (The Netherlands). His research focuses
on understanding the role of emotion and motivation and related
neurotransmitters in the regulation of goal-directed behavior by
employing behavioral, physiological, and neuroimaging methods, such as
EEG, facial EMG, pupillometry, and fMRI.
