Replication Grant awarded

Togeth­er with inter­na­tion­al col­leagues Annette will work on a repli­ca­tion grant from the Dutch Research Coun­cil (NWO), award­ed to Sanne de Wit and Jaap JM Murre from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ams­ter­dam in March 2020. Four labs, includ­ing the O’BRAIN Lab, Paul Fletcher’s Lab at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cam­bridge, and Julia Schüler’s and Maik Bieleke’s lab at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Kon­stanz, will repeat the work described in Lal­ly et al’s (2009) sem­i­nal paper “How are habits formed: Mod­el­ling habit for­ma­tion in the real world”. By pool­ing data across a much increased sam­ple and dif­fer­ent Euro­pean sites, the researchers hope to elu­ci­date the mech­a­nism and dynam­ics under­ly­ing habit for­ma­tion.
