A short introductionProf. dr. Heleen Slagter teaches and does research in the domain of cognitive neuroscience. Her research focuses on (the neural basis of) fundamental cognitive capacities, such as selective attention, and ways to improve cognitive performance. What are the mechanisms that allow us to perceive, select, suppress and become aware of information in the environment? Can these mechanisms that adaptively control information processing be optimized through e.g., mental training or with brain stimulation? The vision is to understand the nature and plasticity of the human mind. For more details: www.heleenslagter.com.
