Tieme Janssen

Assistant Professor, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Tieme Janssen is a neuroscientist who often works with electroencephalography (EEG). He is passionate about understanding how brains work, and how they may function differently in children with ADHD, for example. One of his research lines involves the application of neuroscience to societal needs. For example, he uses EEG neurofeedback to train the attention of children with ADHD or to demonstrate to children that they have control over their brains. Tieme takes neuroscience research out of the lab and applies it in working classrooms and other real-life settings, using portable EEG technology.
