The research group of Andrea Evers is based at the Health, Medical, and Neuropsychology unit of Leiden University. We study the role of psychoneurobiological factors in health, stress, and a wide range of chronic somatic symptoms and conditions, including mechanism-oriented fundamental lab research and applied translational intervention research.
We work in an interdisciplinary setting, collaborating with clinical and research departments within and outside of Leiden University and the Leiden University Medical Center.
Our aim is to gain insight into the psychoneurobiology of health, stress, and chronic conditions. In addition, we develop and examine ways to optimize health and health care for both patients and health care professionals.
In our lab research, we apply multiple psychoneurobiological techniques (e.g., questionnaires, experimental tests, EEG, autonomic, neuroendocrine, and immune assessments) in combination with sophisticated behavioural and physical paradigms (e.g., Quantitative Sensory Testing, conditioning). In addition, we work truly interdisciplinary in optimising health care by combining insights from different disciplines such as psychology, medicine, biology, genetics, and communication. We use these insights to develop and implement disease-generic personalised psychological or psychobiological interventions for patients with all chronic somatic complaints and conditions, for example by means of e-health.
