Cognitive flexibility is the ability to adapt behaviours to a changing environment. In patients with psychiatric disorders such as depression and obsessive compulsive disorder this ability to deal with these kinds of changes flexibly is impaired. Marianne Klanker investigates the role dopamine plays in the regulation of cognitive flexibility. She also studies the neurobiological and cognitive effects of a relatively new psychiatric treatment, deep brain stimulation.
