  • Maxine wins an award!

    Maxine not only presented her very first abstract at her very first conference last week, but also won the EANO Young Investigator Travel Scholarship for Outstanding Science for EANO allied health professionals & nurses members for her work! The abstract of her analysis of cognitive deficits and profiles in glioma patients in the stable phase […]

  • We are at EANO 2022

    Several of us are present at the European Association for Neuro-Oncology’s annual meeting in Vienna between September 15-18! Our oral presentations: Maxine Gorter will present on cognitive profiles of patients in the stable phase of their disease on Saturday (abstract). Whereas most studies have assessed the prevalence of cognitive deficits and co-occurrence of deficits across […]

  • Marloes wins best presentation!

    At the Network Institute’s final presentation session, Marloes (and Anouk in spirit) won the best presentation for her talk on hub diversity in translational neuroscience meetings! This project has been a truly interdisciplinary endeavor with collaborators from Amsterdam UMC (Saskia Peerdeman) and VU University (Joyce Lamerichs, Stéphanie van der Burgt, Jeroen Geurts). Stay tuned for […]

  • MULTINET at EANO 2021

    Our team members will present three posters: Vera Belgers on The potential of cannabinoids to improve quality of glioma patients (P12.07) Tina Varkevisser and Jantine Röttgering on Symptom networks in glioma (P11.01) Jantine Röttgering on Symptoms of patients with diffuse glioma during stable disease as a potential target for treatment (P12.02) Come find them during […]

  • MULTINET at OHBM 2021

    We are at OHBM 2021! Here are the posters where you could find us: #1643 by Shanna Kulik: Individual modeling of neurophysiological brain activity. Abstract & poster PDF #2297 by Lucas Breedt: Multimodal, multilayer network topology correlates of healthy aging and executive functioning. Abstract & poster PDF. And Linda was involved in the following two […]

  • Eduarda will present at GSI ’21

    Eduarda will be presenting the hands-on tutorial on graph and topological network analysis at the conference on Geometric Science of Information, held hybrid-style between 21-23 July in Paris, France! Details can be found here.

  • GOALS2 highlighted

    In GOALS2, we will prospectively investigate whether brain activity measured with MEG or EEG could help determine (pseudo)progression in glioma. The work builds on previous work on the interaction between these primary brain tumors and the surrounding brain tissue. Excited to get started later this year! https://www.amsterdamumc.org/research/institutes/cancer-center-amsterdam/news/-tracking-the-progression-of-brain-tumors-with-non-invasive-methods-.htm

  • Doctor Jolanda Derks

    Jolanda successfully defended her beautiful dissertation “The impact of glioma on brain functioning and vice versa”! Congratulations!

  • Fernando receives IAS fellowship

    The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Amsterdam has granted Fernando a visiting fellowship starting in the spring of 2021! He will investigate high-order interactions in complex systems, asking: how can we empirically measure high-order interactions in networks? Focusing on clinical network neuroscience, this research seeks to connect high-order brain network properties with behavioral properties.

  • Lucas Breedt joins the lab (again)!

    While studying psychology, I realized that my interests leaned more towards research than clinical work. During my master’s I therefore decided to do a research internship, and I ended up at the department of Anatomy and Neurosciences of the VUmc, where I looked at the MEG-based brain networks of patients with MS in relation to […]
