Thanks to our amazing team of RA’s, Lucas Breedt, Margot Wagenmakers and Anouk Ticheler, we have now finished inclusion for our MultiModal Brain project! We have collected 35 datasets in healthy subjects, consisting of EEG, MEG, functional and diffusion MRI, MRS, and a neuropsychological assessment. Hope to make this data available for others in the […]
Her abstract on the predictive value of was chosen for oral presentation! The full talk can be watched back here.
I’m a young doctor with a fascination for human interaction and the secrets of the brain. Working in a neurology department, made me realise that the interaction between research, cure and care is viable to improve care for our patients. Neuro-oncology is a field with great challenges. Patients with a brain tumor still have poor […]
Fernando has received the Trainee Poster Award for his work, which was also a presentation in the workshop on “Phase transitions in the brain” at the Computational Neuroscience meeting in Barcelona. Congratulations Fernando!!
With the end of the academic year nearing, we held a celebratory lab BBQ, right inbetween thunder storms. Special thanks to amazing BSc/MSc students Floris Tijhuis, Vera Belgers, Sofia Orellana, Biniam Melese Bekele, Dora Brooks and Lucas Breedt for their valuable contributions in the past year, and best of luck with your future endeavors!! And […]

We are very happy to continue our research with an NWO-Vidi! This is a short summary of the 5-year project: Cognitive deterioration in lesional brain disease, such as cerebrovascular accidents, multiple sclerosis and glioma, weighs heavily on patients, their caregivers and society, particularly since curative treatment is unavailable. Variation in cognitive decline is large: some […]
We had a great time at the National Platform for Complex Systems in Utrecht!

I am trained in statistical mechanics and applied topology. My current interests are in using methods of topology, geometry, statistical mechanics, and topological data analysis (TDA) in neuroscience. During my Ph.D. at Federal University of Pernambuco (Brazil), I studied the topological aspects of phase transitions in classical Hamiltonian systems. Later, I spend one year as a […]
