Interdisciplinary research

Given YEA’s aim to promote interdisciplinary research, a call for interdisciplinary research between faculties has been launched in spring 2020. Projects led by at least one YEA members could result in either a joint interdisciplinary publication or a joint application for a research grant.

The criteria were simple: (i) the project must involve people from at least two faculties; (ii) the collaboration must be new (i.e. not continuing an existing collaboration); (iii) the collaboration must involve at least 1 YEA member; and, (iv) the requested budget must not exceed 6000 euro. 

The following three projects received funding in March 2020: 

1. Are self management abilities beneficial for frail older peoples’ cognitive functioning?

3. EEG biomarkers for prognosis in anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis. 

A collaboration between Robert van den Berg (Dept. Neurology, EMC), Joris van der Cruijsen (Dept. Rehabilitation Medicine, EMC), & Maarten Titulaer (Dept. Neurology, EMC). 

Dr. (Robert) R van den Berg

Robert van den Berg is a resident in Neurology in the Erasmus MC Rotterdam. He investigates techniques to increase the diagnostic yield of EEG using electrophysiological biomarkers and machine learning algorithms.

(Joris) J van der Cruijsen

Joris van der Cruijsen  is a PhD candidate in the department of Rehabilitation Medicine of the Erasmus MC Rotterdam. Joris obtained his MSc degree in Biomedical Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, where he investigated EEG dynamics during balance control. Currently, Joris investigates the interaction between EEG and non-invasive brain stimulation/motor learning.

The projects are expected to be completed in 2021.
