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!!    

Year-end lab BBQ

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 […]

BrainLayer: the multilayer brain networks underlying cognitive decline

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 […]

Fernando Santos has joined the lab!

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 […]

MuMoBrain has started!

In order to celebrate the first included subject for our MultiModal Brain study (which aims to use multilayer graph theory in order to advance our understanding of individual differences in cognitive functioning), we had a little get together with the large team and ate this homemade MuMoBrain-logo cake!
