NWO Veni grant for dr. Hans IJzerman
July 1, 2013 - Dr. Hans IJzerman (Tilburg University) was awarded a Veni grant by NWO (the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) for his project "Social emotional regulation through skin warming".
Good relationships lead to better health and wellbeing, probably due to social support. The researcher hypothesises that social support is given by way of skin warming. This project will investigate whether skin warming takes place in social emotional regulation, how people learn this skill and when such regulation works.
