Carolien Honours College lectureAs ambassador of the Honours College, Carolien presented a lecture for first-year students who are considering to sign up for this programme. These excellent students are looking for some more challenge in their education and Carolien gave them a taste of what they could expect. She explains that the scientific evidence often contradicts common-sense beliefs. At the start of the lecture, the majority of students thought it would be wise to have aggressive youth take boxing classes. By the end of the lecture they had learned that this does not help to downregulate aggression but in fact keeps levels of aggression high. Read the news item on Leiden University's website (in Dutch).
