Main research interests

My research focus is attachment and emotion regulation in parents and their children, with special emphasis on neurobiological processes in parenting and development. My academic interests include the interplay between nature and nurture, exploring and testing the ‘differential susceptibility’ model. Intervention studies, changing the environment for the better, have their natural place in this line of research. Part of my job is the coordination and organization of the behavioural and molecular genetics project within the Leiden Attachment Research Program. Using our Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting and Sensitive Discipline, we found that the intervention was particularly effective for children with the DRD4-7repeat allele, both in terms of decreased externalizing behavior and in terms of lower daily cortisol levels, a stress hormone that at this age is positively related to externalizing problem behavior (Developmental Psychology, Development and Psychopathology, 2008). Moreover, we identified a molecular genetic basis of human parenting.

We examined the underlying mechanisms of adults’ caregiving responses, using an experimental design with cry sounds as well as a life-like crying baby doll. We found that a sniff of oxytocin decreased amygdala activity --related to anxiety and aversion-- and increased activation in the insula and inferior frontal gyrus pars triangularis --involved in empathy (Biological Psychiatry, 2011). Moreover, oxytocin increased the rewarding value of infant laughter, and promoted flexible adaptation to infant crying in various contexts, lowering the perceived urgency of crying of a bored infant, while increasing empathic reactions to crying of a sick infant. The effects of oxytocin administration may however be moderated by early childhood experiences (Translational Psychiatry, 2013).
