Joris Elshout

Project: Novel treatment of visuospatial neglect

Affiliation: Behavioural Scientist at Olivijncollege

Background: Neuroscience and Cognition

During the ORA project I investigated a new rehabilitation paradigm for neglect patients in order to ameliorate neglect symptoms. I used eye tracking methods to study eye movement behavior and clinical tests to investigate the surplus value of this new rehabilitation paradigm.

Jasper Fabius

Project: Basic Mechanisms of Visual Attention

Affiliation: Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK

As a research associate at INP of the University of Glasgow, I use fMRI and computational modelling to understand how the brain translates visual information into a coordinate system that can be used to act upon.

Junior Researcher

Isabel Gosselt

Project: Mixed Reality & Digital Neuropsychological Assessment

Affiliation: Kenniscentrum Kinder- en Jeugdpsychiatrie

Currently working as a policy officer at the Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Psychiatry. We bundle knowledge about child and youth psychiatry from three perspectives: scientific research, experiential expertise and practical knowledge. By spreading the knowledge widely (professionals, children, parents, school, governments) we aim to improve the youth mental health care.
