Two posters at OHBM2020!

#1493 by Shanna Kulik, on Modeling neurophysiological brain activity in individual subjects; we describe a personalized Jansen-Rit neural mass model that uses individual structural connectivity to recapitulate MEG-based empirical functional connectivity. #2064 by Vera Belgers, in which we use MEG oscillatory activity as a proxy of brain activity to predict progression-free survival in glioma patients, […]

Biniam wins young investigator award!

After presenting his thesis work on “Changes in resting-state functional brain networks of breast cancer patients treated with chemotherapy and their correlation with fatigue”, Biniam Melese won a young investigator award at ICCTF’s meeting (the International Cognition and Cancer Task Force)! Very well done, and a good reflection of Biniam’s efforts in this highly collaborative […]

Two projects funded

Two of our collaborative ideas have received funding from Amsterdam Neuroscience! The first is on linking postmortem MS pathology to large-scale brain network failure (PI: Menno Schoonheim, in the Neuroinflammation theme), the second on multiscale correlates of cognition (PI: Natalia Goriounova in the Systems and Network Neuroscience theme). Much bridging of scales planned for the coming years!

Biniam to present at ICCTF!

Biniam Melese, who did his internship with Michiel de Ruiter, Sanne Schagen (both of the Netherlands Cancer Institute) and Linda on the brain network correlates of chemobrain in breast cancer patients, has received the honor of holding an oral presentation at the annual meeting of the International Cognition and Cancer Task Force! He will be elucidating […]

MuMoBrain project inclusion is a wrap!

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 […]

Fernando receives Trainee Poster Award!

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!!
