Tomorrow, I will defend my dissertation at the Delft University of Technology.
I'll start with a presentation about my work at 14.30 and the defence will start at 15.00.

After 4 years, the project has come to an end. All the experiments have been conducted and the results have been submitted to international journals (see the publication list). The findings are also combined in a thesis which is being evaluated by the PhD committee as we speak. The public defence of this thesis will take place on October 28 at Delft University of Technology.
Today, our new intern starts her project. During the course of her 6 months graduation project, she will be investigating the design of our feedbacksystem. What will be the most effective way of giving specific feedback to a user under stress? What auditive or visual factors should be noticed? These are some of the questions she will be answering with her project. We hope she will enjoy the project.
On Friday, May 16, 2014, TU Delft and VU Amsterdam will organize a symposium in Delft on "Virtual Reality and Physiological Measurements for Training and Therapy". A brief description is provided below. For more information, see https://www.hersenenencognitie.nl/contents/2382?locale=en.
Last Friday was the last day of experimental sessions at TNO. Around 24 participants travelled to TNO in the last week to partake in this study. The main hypotheses of this experiment focused on differences in results between the feedback conditions. We implemented 3 types of feedback in the feedback system (bio/feedback, performance feedback and specific error feedback), and this experiment tested if scores on a stressful task varied when different feedback or combinations of feedback were given.
