I am an assistant professor and have a background in human neuroanatomy, specializing in the diencephalon. My work is focused on increasing the understanding of the human subthalamic nucleus, which is targeted by deep brain stimulation (DBS) in patients with Parkinson’s disease. My ultimate aim is to explain the deleterious side effects of DBS. For this I study human post-mortem brain specimens using various microscopic techniques.
I am an assistant professor at Leiden University and senior scientist at the University of Amsterdam. I am interested in model-based cognitive neuroscience with a strong focus on the human subcortex.
I am a technical assistant working with post-mortem data of subcortical nuclei in collaboration with Dick Swaab (Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, Amsterdam, Netherlands).
Senior Scientists, Postdocs, and PhD students
I am a postdoc and am interested in the joint modelling of decision-making by combining behavioral and neural data. My research aims to find common processes across different decision-making tasks.
I am a scientist working on model-based cognitive neuroscience projects. My projects make use of ultra-high resolution 7T structural and functional MRI of small subcortical nuclei involved in decision-making processes.
I am a PhD student working on model-based cognitive neuroscience projects with Bernhard Hommel (Leiden University, Netherlands) as my co-supervisor. My projects make use of ultra-high resolution 7T structural and functional MRI of small subcortical nuclei involved in decision-making processes.
I am a postdoc. My research focuses on the structure and function of the human Thalamus using 7T in combination with cognitive modeling.
I am a PhD student co-supervised by Dora Matzke (University of Amsterdam, Netherlands) and I am interested in the joint modelling of decision-making by combining behavioral and neural data. My research aims to find common processes across different decision-making tasks.
I am a PhD student co-supervised by Steven Miletic (Leiden University and University of Amsterdam, Netherlands) investigating the role of advanced knowledge biases in decision-making processes. My research makes use of 7T fMRI and joint modelling to clarify the relationship between behavioral and neural data in the presence of biases.
