In 2015, Nadine Her­zog com­plet­ed her Bach­e­lor in psy­chol­o­gy at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Twente in the Nether­lands. She final­ized her mas­ters pro­gram in neuroscience—at the Vri­je Uni­ver­siteit Ams­ter­dam—with a semi-annu­al research project at the Tel Aviv Uni­ver­si­ty in Israel. Dur­ing this project, she inves­ti­gat­ed the effects of mind­ful­ness-based stress reduc­tion on aber­rant EEG sig­na­tures in ADHD and dyslex­ic adults. In Jan­u­ary 2018, Nadine start­ed her PhD project at the O’BRAIN Lab, exam­in­ing shared and dif­fer­en­tial neu­rocog­ni­tive mech­a­nisms in obe­si­ty and binge eat­ing dis­or­der dur­ing dif­fer­ent stages of brain mat­u­ra­tion. Here she uti­lizes behav­ioral as well as func­tion­al mag­net­ic res­o­nance imag­ing (fMRI) paradigms.
