The mission of the Junior Board is to bring together junior scholars (master, PhD, post-doc) in Psychological Sciences from all around Belgium. The two main goals of the Junior Board are 1) to foster scientific collaboration between junior and senior researchers, mainly at a national level, and 2) to address the specific difficulties junior researchers might face during their early academic careers.
The mission of the Junior Board is to bring together junior scholars (master, PhD, post-doc) in Psychological Sciences from all around Belgium. As such, we aim to represent and serve junior scholars from all Belgian universities and all domains within Psychology. The Junior Board adheres to the same principles as the BAPS Executive Committee with which it interacts closely.
Additionally, the Junior board aims at intensively promoting Open Science within the field of Psychology, and to raise awareness about researchers’ ecological footprint, especially when travelling abroad. Finally, the Junior board aims at reflecting on how new (social) communication tools (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, blogs) can help to disseminate scientific research to the broader scientific community and the general public.
The BAPS Junior Board is a partner of the Belgian Federation of Psychology Students, a new non-profit student organisation that strives towards a strong network between Belgian psychology students across different universities in Belgium. Check their website here: https://www.bfps.be/
Coline Grégoire is a PhD student in cognitive psychology in the Psychology and Neuroscience of Cognition Research Unit at ULiège. Her doctoral research examines the unity and specificity of inhibitory processes in working memory and language by investigating different types of verbal and visual inhibition and their impairment in healthy and brain injured older people using a behavioral approach and a functional neuroimaging approach (fMRI). She is delegate of the Junior Board and the representative at the Executive Committee of the BAPS.Personal website

Sandra Invernizzi is a Ph.D. student in neuropsychology in the Cognitive Psychology and Neuropsychology department of the UMONS. Her doctoral research examines the semantic memory and its differential impairment in the pathological contexts of Alzheimer disease and late-life depression. Her research is based on priming protocols designed to explore separately automatic propagation of activation and semantic executive.Personal website
Yesim is a Phd student at the Health Psychology group at KU Leuven. Her research is on aversive reactions to innocuous sounds with a focus on three conditions: misophonia, hyperacusis and bothersome tinnitus. She uses qualitative assessment tools and experimental research designs to study the etiology of three conditions while investigating the possible underlying learning accounts (i.e. referential learning).Personal website
