Congratulations to the January 2018 winner of the Brain Research Travel Exchange Scholarship

February 28, 2018

Maria Elisabeth (Mmariaarlies) Vissers is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom where she participates in the Neuronal Oscillations Research Group headed by Dr. Ole Jensen, working on rhythmic sampling using MEG in combination with rapid frequency tagging. 

Maria is excited to use the state-of-the-art Landau lab at HUJI, where she hopes to increase the quality of her MEG research on rhythmic sampling. The HUJI environment will enable her to collect high-quality psychophysics datasets in collaboration with experts in the Landau lab, and to address outstanding questions on the topic of her current research.


Offered by the JBC, the Brain Research Travel Exchange Scholarship provides financial support to help outstanding PhD students or postdocs carry out collaborative research projects, for a period of up to 3 months, at top brain centers in the world. The next call to apply for this scholarship will be on May 2018. For more information click here.
