Simone is interested in the role of neural oscillations in temporal processing and temporal expectations, and associated deficits in ageing and neurodegeneration. She uses behavioural methods and MEG to investigate these topics.
Simone grew up in Doetinchem, the Netherlands. She completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands and then took a 2-year research master's in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Donders Institute in Nijmegen. Her research project on the topic of entrainment of slow brain activity preceding leg movements was supervised by Peter Praamstra.
