S.A. Hescham

Sarah-Anna Hescham is an assistant professor at the School for Mental Health and Neuroscience at Maastricht University. She has been awarded the NWO Veni grant to continue her scientific career in the arena of neuromodulation. In particular she is working at the interface of neuroscience, materials science and electronics with the aim to apply magnetic nanoparticle technology to enable neuronal control in-vitro and in-vivo.

Her other research interest lies in applying deep brain stimulation in order to restore memory loss. Specifically, she tries to define the most optimal stimulation target, stimulation parameters as well as mechanisms of action.
