Sara Lippé
As adults, we are often amazed by how fast and naturally young chlidren learn. There are multiple factors influencing a child’s growth. My research program’s objective is to reach a better understanding of the cerebral mechanisms involved in the learning process of children and very young children.
•   on the cerebral mechanisms of healthy children.
Links with the normal cerebral development, the standby/sleep cycles, nutrition, the family environment, child autoregulation…
I’m also interested in the pathologies that may occur at key moments of the child’s cerebral development, which could be detrimental to the cerebral, cognitive and emotional development. For example, I study the effects of an epilepsy caused by a developmental lesion and of the epilepsy with no apparent cause.
Investigation methods : cerebral imagery (structural and functional), electrophysiology (EGG/MEG), behavior (neuropsychological tests, eye tracking)é

She started her research and her teaching career at the HUBrussel in 2010. She currently teaches work and organisational psychology. As a member of the Research Group on human relationships, her research goal is to examine how, and under which circumstances individuals may thrive at work. Her research unravels the interplay between job conception, for example approached though the Demands-Resources employment model, and impaired (i.e. burnout) and optimal (i.e. work engagement) well-being and motivation. She examines how the quality of motivation, as detailed in the Self-Determination Theory in terms of regulation, values and needs, has an impact on the relationship between the work-context and the optimal functioning of the employees. Her further research interests include unemployment, volunteering, students and workaholism.

Maarten Vansteenkiste, Ph.D.
During the last year M. Vansteenkiste did his master’s studies at the University of Leuven (Belgium), he spent one year with Edward Deci and Richard Ryan, the founding fathers of the Self-Determination Theory, at the University of Rochester (USA). He is currently supervising several doctoral students studying motivational dynamics in very diverse fields, including eating regulation, ecology, parenting, and physical education. In his research he focuses on motivational dynamics. He tries to understand how the different reasons to engage in an activity and pursue different goals are related to the outcomes, such as performance, persistence, learning, and well-being. Often, it is assumed that greater outcomes will follow when people are more strongly motivated to engage in an activity. Yet, research findings show that it is critical to consider the type of motivation (i.e., autonomous or controlled) and the type of goals (i.e., intrinsic or extrinsic) people have for engaging in an activity to understand whether they will be productive, engaged, and persistent. Through his research, he tries to develop the Self-Determination Theory (Deci & Ryan, 2000; Ryan & Deci, 2000), a well-known and empirically validated motivation theory. He has been using SDT as a source of inspiration to study motivational dynamics in a variety of life domains including education, parenting, psychotherapy, ecology, work and unemployment, and sports and exercise.
