Welcome to Colzato Lab!
The Leiden Colzato Lab explores the relations between dopamine, a very important neurotransmitter, and cognitive control, the way we control our thoughts and goal directed behavior. A special focus of the lab is to explore how exactly dopaminergic supply affects control functions.
Current projects focus on how genetics can predict
individual differences in preserving cognitive control in old
Using theoretically motivated cognitive tasks, including different techniques as reaction time (RT), event-related potential (ERP) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), we search for convergent evidence for the role of dopamine in cognitive control. A description of the current projects can be found on the research page.
