National and International Projects
At the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the UMC Utrecht Brain Center we elucidate the neuronal mechanisms underlying human brain function in order to understand, diagnose and treat patients with mental disorders and with afflictions of the central and peripheral nervous system.
We aim to understand the relationship between electrical, metabolic, cerebrovascular and neurochemical processes of neuronal populations on the one hand, and normal and abnormal behaviour on the other hand. To that end, we focus both on methodology and application in brain imaging research.
- Impact of Neurotechnology (2020-2021)
Short call to advise the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Safety about the impact of Neurotechnologies in the future. Together with the Faculty of Law of the University of Utrecht, we investigated the risks and benefits of neurotechnology, now and in the future.
- Language in Interaction (2015-2021)
NWO Consortium Gravitation Grant with a work package awarded to Nick Ramsey. In this work package, we investigated the language system, the interplay with different cognitive systems and speech production using ECoG and fMRI signals.
- NeuroShirt (2017-2019)
The UMC Utrecht and Elitac developed a neuro navigation in a shirt that uses vibrations to guide the neurosurgeon during surgery.
