Functiebeschrijving

We are currently looking for a highly motivated and determined candidate for a PhD student in the section of prof. dr. Gert J. ter Horst (known in the Netherlands as dr. Love). The PhD student will work on “development of depressive symptoms after a breakup of a romantic relationship and how this translates to development of depression in Parkinsons disease”.

Chronic stress or life events have been identified as leading cause in the etiology of depression. There is increasing evidence that stress activates different neuronal circuitry in men and women, which might contribute to an observed sex difference in prevalence of depression. We know little about the sequence of (gender-specific) events taking place in the healthy brain after a life event and how this contributes to development of depression. Since a large number of Parkinson patients will develop depression during progression of the disease, a compromised function of the dopaminergic system may be part of this sequence of events. To unravel these events we want to follow the changes in brain activity that take place during grieving of a broken-up relationship (heart break). In this period people show changes in behavior that resemble a mild depression, like depressed mood, lack of sleep, loss of appetite, grief, concentration problems, and ruminating thoughts. For the start of the project we have acquired a database of 76 men and women suffering of heartbreak who underwent fMRI scans and completed different questionnaires. There are options for designing own fMRI studies during the PhD project.

In the Neuroimaging Center you will become part of an international research team. The Neuroimaging Center offers an excellent research environment with ample possibilities for collaboration with both basic as well as clinical researchers.
