Our lab is focused on understanding the overarching mechanism and the nifty details making the brain the most complex network known to man. We investigate the brain network and its fundamental properties in healthy people, its associations with cognitive functioning and cascadic demise in neurological disease, as well as its molecular underpinnings.

Methods we commonly use are neurophysiology (EEG/MEG), neuroimaging (fMRI/dMRI), graph analysis, neuropsychological assessments, histopathology, and computational neuroscience. We mainly investigate people with brain tumors and/or epilepsy, but are also involved in projects concerning healthy people, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological diseases.

We are embedded in the Department of Anatomy and Neurosciences – section of Clinical Neuroscience at VUmc (Amsterdam, the Netherlands), led by prof. Jeroen Geurts. An important part of our research is further facilitated by other collaborations and people (see collaborators section for detailed info), as we aim to link previously separate units in both our studies as well as our daily approach towards science.

Our work has been mainly funded by NWO (Veni), Society in Science (Branco Weiss fellowship), and Amsterdam Neuroscience.
