Martijn Arns graduated in the late 90’s as a biological psychologist at Radboud University in Nijmegen, conducted various projects in the field of applied neuroscience in Sydney (Westmead Hospital), Munich (Max Planck Institute for Psychiatry) and Scotland (Organon Research in Newhouse). Martijn received his PhD at Utrecht University on the topic of 'EEG-based personalized medicine for ADHD and depression' and is specialized in neurobiological aspects of ADHD and depression.
In 2001 he founded Research Institute Brainclinics, now part of the non-profit Brainclinics Foundation, as an independent research institute, where he further specialises in advancing the understanding of psychiatric disorders through brain imaging (QEEG, ERPs), chronobiology, sleep and Research Domain Criteria (RDoC), which knowledge should aid in a future of personalised medicine in mental health. He is further specialised in the development and application of neuromodulation techniques such as neurofeedback in the treatment of ADHD and magnetic brain stimulation (rTMS) in the treatment of depression and OCD. At Brainclinics he supervises a team of senior researchers and PhD's, published more than 150 scientific publications and 4 patents. In addition, Brainclinics Foundation researchers are affiliated with Amsterdam AMC / University of Amsterdam and University of Maastricht (Dept. of Psychology & Neuroscience; Section Brain Stimulation and Cognition), where Martijn also holds an assistant and associate professorship respectively.
In 2006 Martijn founded Brainclinics Treatment as a Brainclinics spin-off where new innovative treatments (rTMS, Neurofeedback) and assessments (sleep, QEEG) were pioneered and validated. This clinic was acquired by the neuroCare Group in 2015 where he still serves as a scientific adviser. In addition, Martijn was also founding director of Brainquiry (until 2007), editor of various scientific journals and books, organized many international conferences and served on the board of several international professional organisations.
