Bob Bermond, PhD, graduated in psychology with a specialization in experimental psychology. After graduation he worked successively at the Dutch Brain Research Institute (now called The Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience), department of Pharmacology at the university of Leiden, the Netherlands, and the university of Amsterdam faculty of psychology (department of Brain and Cognition), also in the Netherlands.

He has always been interested in emotions, the fields of the biological bases of emotions, consciousness and animal welfare, and has published several scientific papers and book chapters on these topics. As a lecturer he has given courses in neuropsychology of emotion, hormones and behavior, and consciousness. Currently his main interest is alexithymia.

He constructed the Bermond-Vorst Alexithymia Questionnaire (BVAQ) in association with his colleague Harrie Vorst (university of Amsterdam faculty of psychology, department of Methodology), and evolved and substantiated the idea that there are two higher order factors involved in alexithymia, which are orthogonal to one another; an affective and a cognitive one.
