Antoinette van Laarhoven, PhD
Antoinette van Laarhoven is Assistant Professor of Health Psychology at the Health, Medical, and Neuropsychology unit at Leiden University. Her research focuses on the psychoneurobiology of itch and pain, with a special interest in unraveling the mechanisms of chronic itch and pain conditions, such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and post-burn itch. At the moment, she particularly focuses on the neurobiological processing (e.g., measured by EEG) of induced itch and pain by use of quantitative sensory testing (QST), and the role of expectations in the experience of these somatosensory sensations.Back to the people page
