Profile image of Michel van den Oever

I studied Medical Biology at the VU Amsterdam and obtained a PhD in Neuroscience at the department of Molecular and Cellular Neurobiology, VU Amsterdam. After a postdoctoral training at the lab of Dr. Sheena Josselyn at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada, I returned to the VU, where I now head the Memory Circuits research team at the Center for Neurogenomics and Cognitive Research.
I participate in several research consortia (e.g. BRAINSCAPES) and received a VENI and VIDI grant from the Netherlands Organization of Scientific Research (NWO) and ZonMw.
My research currently focuses on the spatial and temporal organization of memories related to drugs of abuse and fear in the brain.
