On August 20, Ouunponian Stephen Whitmarsh received his PhD in neuroscience from the Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands, on the thesis titled "Metacognition and Nonreactivity in Mindfulness". His work was done at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging under the supervision of Prof. H. P. Barendregt and Prof. O. Jensen.

In his laudatio speech, Prof. Jensen remarked on the demand in science "to try to think outside of the box". To which he added that "Stephen was never inside of the box in the first place". In that context, Prof. Jensen mentioned Ouunpo's aim and activities and Stephen's recent performance at Spiral, Tokyo.

The beautiful illustration and design of the thesis cover (Donders Series nr. 120, ISBN 978-94-91027-62-8) was done by Ouunponian Elena Nemkova.
