Umberto Olcese was trained as a Biomedical Engineer, but soon became fascinated with the brain. During his PhD and PostDoc he developed his skills in computational and experimental methods to study neuronal activity. As an Associate Professor at the University of Amsterdam, he investigates the neuron-level mechanisms of multisensory processing and consciousness. In INTENSE he will develop a new class of neuroprosthetic devices to restore cortical function and perception following traumatic events.
