Suzanne van de Groep is a PhD candidate studying the behavioral and neural development of prosocial behavior in adolescence. She is specifically interested in how social contextual factors (e.g., familiarity and audience effects) and individual differences influence giving and other forms of prosociality; and how this is reflected in adolescents’ brains. For her PhD project, Suzanne is involved in all stages (e.g., design, ethical approval, data collection, analyses, writing) of the Brainlinks study, a comprehensive longitudinal study on prosocial development. 142 participants and their parents participate in this study that employs multiple techniques (i.e., MRI, hormonal data, laboratory tasks, questionnaires, parent reports) to examine the development of prosocial behavior in adolescence both behaviorally and neurally.
