dr.ir. B.C. Schwab (Bettina)

Assistant Professor


My research interests lie in systems neuroscience and computational biology with a focus on the motor system and basal ganglia. I am fascinated by the physiology of the human brain, and how it controls movement in such a precise and reliable way. Therefore, with a background in physics, I aim to investigate the (dys)function of this system using technical methods, including experimental and computational approaches: electrophysiological recordings, modulation of brain activity by both invasive and non-invasive stimulation, and neural network dynamics. I also have a fable for investigating the basics of electric brain stimulation and advancing new stimulation techniques.
