About me

I am an assistant professor in cognitive neuroscience at the section of Brain Stimulation and Cognition, Department of Cognitive Neuroscience, Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience, Maastricht University.

I am primarily interested in how the brain processes visual information. Through a complex sequence of small interactions and mechanisms, at several levels of organisation, our brain finally gives us the wonderful conscious experiences we have all day long. What better way to spend your life than to try to understand that?

I have used neuroimaging techniques such as fMRI, MEG, and EEG, to uncover these mechanisms. I have used brain stimulation techniques such as TMS and tACS to influence and thus further study these mechanisms.

I’m just one guy, and learning every day, but the scientific community is really starting to understand all this stuff! So stay tuned…

I want to wholeheartedly thank the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for supporting me over the years (Toptalent grant 2008, Veni grant 2013).
