Prof. Dr. Richard Ridderinkhof


  • Position
  • Professor of Developmental psychology

Ridderinkhof is interested in which areas of the brain are active in ‘action control’, the intentional inhibition and selection of behaviour. His research on ‘cognitive control’, the brain’s ability to respond flexibly to the demands of the environment, is considered classic in the field.
