• 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 […]

  • Mona Zimmermann

    I joined the MULTINET Lab in January 2021 as a student of the Brain and Cognitive sciences Master (UvA). Both my Bachelor’s and Master’s programs were focused on training their students to become interdisciplinary researchers in the (huge) field of Neuroscience. While studying I tried hard to understand what that actually means and to find […]

  • Vasco Rauh

    I recently graduated from the Vrije Universiteit with a master’s degree in Neuroscience. During my study, I also engaged in a variety of neurophilosophical courses, which has made me skilled at evaluating the conceptual foundations of neuroscientific research. During my first neuroscientific internship I studied the network configuration of alcohol seeking under motivational conflict in […]

  • Dagmar will defend on March 17th!

    Dagmar Nieboer will defend her thesis “Healthy life, happy brain?” on March 17th, at 1.45pm in the VU Aula. More info will follow!

  • 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 […]

  • Marloes Bet

    I am a second-year Neurosciences Master student, fascinated by the ability of the brain to govern the entire human body, including itself. In my last internship, I used a network approach to integrate structural (anatomical) and functional (activity-related) MRI-data in multiple sclerosis patients with and without cognitive impairment. As I realised the extent to which […]

  • Shanna gave a talk at ECTRIMS 2019

    Her abstract on the predictive value of was chosen for oral presentation! The full talk can be watched back here.

  • Jantine Röttgering joins the lab!

    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 […]
