Hatred of sound: Misophonia. Have you ever thought that hearing other people’s chewing can be disturbing to the level of a disease? … When I learned from Mercede that there are barely 40 scientific articles published on misophonia the world (her opinion) on this topic, I thought, this simply can not be. How is itContinue reading “(43) Research on Brain (extension): Misophonia.”

(42) Research on BRAIN: do-your-own-little Research.
This post of Researchista’s fantastic experience of using Research to learn Dutch faster has been erased by mistake and it awaits one day for it to be reproduced. It was one very good of a post… Until the inspiration comes again! With love for Research, R.
(41) Research on brain: hearing.
And here is Laurien back again with a crash intro on what is happening in our brain when we hear something! Did you hear that? 😉 A ringing in your ear? Source: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/12/03/living-with-a-sound-you-can%E2%80%99t-turn-off/ The first post in this BRAIN research series was about language. Next to spoken words, there are plenty of other sounds in ourContinue reading “(41) Research on brain: hearing.”
(40) Research on Brain: reading.
Research on BRAIN month continues with the another indispensable gift that human brain offers us, amongst other skills – and that is READING. The Experienced Researcher at the 4th top young leading university in the world Maastricht University, Dr. Gojko Žarić will explain us how is it that we end up re-a-ding… Finally, I get to understand whatContinue reading “(40) Research on Brain: reading.”
(39) Research on Brain: language.
We all have the impression that the brain is vast, and that vastness allows us to perform a long list of human functions. One of the unique functions that humans have is by far the ability to communicate. Human communication is direct and self-motivated. We do not only express ourselves to others, but we do it with the intention to change the behavior and knowledge of others.
(38) Research on Food: make-your-own-little-Research.
Every Monday, during a month on Researchista’s Blog you will find a new subject in which we invite one or more Researchers to talk about it. They are called “Special Guests” (because they are special and because they are guests). At the end of every subject (4th week of each month), Researchista is inviting anyone willingContinue reading “(38) Research on Food: make-your-own-little-Research.”
(37) Aesthetics, Food and Innovation
Dear Researchista friends, please welcome our first Special Guest from abroad (outside NL), Dr. Beatrice D’Ippolito! This month Researchista has decided to focus on the food industry. As an evolutionary economist at root, when I think of an industry and the products or services offered, I start thinking of what drives change and innovation in theContinue reading “(37) Aesthetics, Food and Innovation”

Our Special Guest Michelle Jongen (former student of HAS University in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, study Environmental Science) discovered ‘vertical farming’ and wondered how she could implement a vertical farming system in combination with a knowledge center. She wants to create awareness, and activate and inspire people about the environment with herContinue reading “(36) Research on food (industry): the future.”
(34) Impostor Syndrome in Academia.
Whilst I am sitting here writing this first post for Researchista, various dark thoughts run through my mind. Did I bite off a bigger piece than I can chew? Are people going to think this is a dull piece of text? Can I combine blogging with my PhD work? Self-doubt and critique are a pretty common phenomenon that many of you are familiar with. These feelings are quite normal and adaptive because they make us go the extra mile. They urge us to practice that presentation one more time before getting on stage or to repeat those materials a last time before the test.
(33) Public speaking and you.
Some time ago I was asked whether I do motivational speeches. I answered that being motivational is the minimum requirement for any speaker. What really matters, however, is how the audience will be better off after I’m gone.
