Hello SciMastodon! Let’s neuroscience! This is my first post here so I put one of my favorite brains in the pic. Can you name the species?

Please do let me know how to follow all you neuroscience folks (and related scientists) so I can get in the conversation — just toot your handle at me! Did I use the that term correctly? 🤷‍♂️

Here is my #introduction. I'm Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Neuroscience at Vanderbilt University. I study the neural basis of cognitive function, cognitive development and plasticity. Most recently I have used deep brain stimulation targeting the cholinergic forebrain as a means of improving cognitive function.

I'm a (born Dutch) neuroscientist and very passionate about everything that has to do with brains esp. single neurons and networks. We (try to!) do theory, computation and brain recordings (in several species) in the same lab.

But I am also passionate about electromagnetism, information theory, digital signal processing, statistics, and machine learning.

And most of all playing piano (jazz, blues, classic) and watching the ocean (secretly looking for a job near the beach by the way...).

Will be at 2022
