Unfortunately, personal reasons have forced prof. David Sharp to cancel the Ruysch Lecture and masterclass on brain networks (March 13 2018). Given the high number of enthusiastic responses, we hope to reschedule the lecture as soon as possible. Of course we will inform you once a new date has been agreed upon.

Anne-Lieke van Deijk


Speaker: David Sharp (National Institute of Health Research (NIHR))

Title: Brain Networks - Structural and Functional Connectivity

How do disease and treatment impact the structure and function of brain networks? Prof. dr. Sharp will try to answer this question based on his own research work. By understanding changes in network function in patients, he hopes to guide the development of novel treatment strategies for patients with cognitive impairments.

Prof. dr. David Sharp is an National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Research Professor and honorary consultant neurologist with a special interest in traumatic brain injury. He runs a multidisciplinary traumatic brain injury clinic at Charing Cross hospital and directs a program of research investigating the impact of traumatic brain injury on cognitive function. His research uses advanced neuroimaging (e.g. diffusion tensor imaging, resting-state functional MRI) to study brain network function, both in healthy individuals and clinical populations. His recent research work also focuses on brain networks in patients with HIV (Source: Imperial College London).

Hosts: Dr. Marsh Königs & prof. dr. Jaap Oosterlaan (Emma Children’s Hospital, AMC)
