Freek van Ede
Post-doctoral Research Fellow
- Newton International Fellow
Freek is a post-doctoral researcher at the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA) and is a member of both the Brain & Cognition Lab (PI Kia Nobre) as well as the Attention Lab (PI Mark Stokes).
Freek’s research aims at characterizing the neurophysiological implementation of cognition, with a particularly focus on how preparatory modulations of oscillatory neural activity set the stage for the perception and subsequent working memory maintenance of goal-relevant information.
For his current research project at OHBA, entitled “How prior brain states govern access to working memory”, Freek received a Newton International Fellowship offered jointly by The Royal Society and The British Academy.
Freek grew up and completed his prior education in The Netherlands. He obtained his BSc in Psychology (2007) from the University of Utrecht and his MSc (2009) and PhD (2014) in Cognitive Neuroscience from the Radboud University Nijmegen. During his doctorate at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Freek investigated the role of oscillatory neural activity in preparatory somatosensory attention under supervision of Eric Maris and in collaboration with Ole Jensen and Floris de Lange.
