This symposium is coordinated by Rudi De Raedt, Professor of Clinical Psychology and head of the department of Experimental Clinical and Health Psychology at Ghent University, where he is PI of the Psychopathology and Affective Neuroscience lab. He developed influential frameworks and accomplished ground breaking work on the neurocognitive mechanisms underlying stress dynamics and vulnerability for affective disorders, and the translation to innovative neurocognitive interventions. He received the Révész honorary chair from the Graduate School of Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, and is fellow of the Association for Psychological Science.
