Current research with his team includes extensions of his work to computational network approaches to psychopathology, investigation of attentional and executive processes as core transdiagnostic mechanisms of psychopathology, and several translational research agendas (e.g., neuromodulation, neurocognitive training). Over the last years, Alexandre Heeren has received several grants, fellowships, and awards for his research.
