Research wise a good year! 2022 here we come…

Posted on: 24 December 2021

What a year was 2021. A lot of turmoil across the world which did impact everyone. Of course this also impacted all of you and also us as researchers/lecturers. However, we also feel we had a great year. We started with analyzing our cross-sectional findings on autism and aging to see whether we can replicate our earlier findings. For the protective effect the answer was no, for the parallel effect the answer was yes and for the lack of evidence for accelerated aging the answer was yes (see paper Torenvliet on the publication section of our website). We reviewed all kinds of subgrouping papers in the autism field (see paper Agelink-van Rentergem) to conclude that in many papers it is not clear when authors feel it will be a valid subtype. We tried to determine subtypes ourselves in the general population to test our preregistered method which we also will apply in autistic adults (for general aging subtype paper, see paper Radhoe). We also focused on menopause (questionnaire data), perceptual processing (MRI data), and much more.

We could not have done all this work without

So we hope for a great 2022, with relevant new findings, great collaborations, and hopefully without all the pandemic turmoil. Thanks again everyone.
