S.F.W. Neggers


Research Programs


Bas Neggers was trained as a biophysicist at the University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands, and received his MSc degree in experimental physics in 1996. He obtained his PhD degree at the Max-Planck-Institute in Munich, Germany. He is actively pursuing valorization of techniques developed at the UMC Utrecht in order to help others benefit from our innovative approaches (see www.neuralnavigator.com). He founded his own company Brain Science Tools (www.brainsciencetools.com) to achieve these goals. Currently he is associate professor at the neuroimaging research group at the UMC Utrecht. He head the fMRI guided TMS workgroup within the department, and he focusses on functional neuroimaging and neurostimulation methods development, neurocomputational modeling and the control of action preparation in healthy subjects and patients with several disorders.
