Kerstin J. Plessen

Professor, Cheffe de Service SUPEA at CHUV, Lausanne university hospital, Switzerland.

​​​​​​

Primært forskningsområde

Kerstin Plessens hovedinteresse er kortlægning af udvikling af selvregulering hos børn med neuropsykiatriske forstyrrelser med fokus på adfærd, kognition og underliggende neurobiologi på de områder, der typisk er forstyrret hos disse børn og unge. Hendes forskergruppe undersøger udviklingsmæssige aspekter af selvregulering såsom opmærksomhedsprocesser, præstationsmonitorering, motivation og social kognition ud fra et transdiagnostisk perspektiv, hvor man sammenligner disse dimensioner hos børn med flere neuropsykiatriske forstyrrelser. Typisk anvendes der kliniske psykopatologiske målinger, neuropsykologiske tests og hjernescanninger i samarbejde med billeddiagnostiske centre.​​

Aktuel forskning​​​​​​

​Kerstin Plessen leder flere longitudinale studier i Region Hovedstaden, på Københavns Universitet og på Universitetet i Bergen, som undersøger udviklingen af emotionel regulering hos børn med ADHD og TS. Derudover er hun ansvarlig for et studie med et langsigtet perspektiv, som kortlægger de dimensionale neuropsykiatriske udredninger af børn med risiko for at udvikle psykiske lidelser (The Danish High Risk and Resilience Study – VIA7).

Research Statement

 

The aim of my group aims to study self-regulatory control, especially performance monitoring, but

also its interaction with emotional factors across normal and pathologic development, using a

combination of clinical and neurocognitive variables with measures of brainmapping (anatomical

and functional MRI and EEG). Learning more about the interaction of genetic and environmental

factors during the development of children and adolescents, will help to design both approaches

that facilitate processes of resilience, as well as effective early interventions that enhance mental

health and hopefully improve the quality of life for children and young individuals in their life-span.
