 Overall, my training stay at Ghent University was extremely interesting and productive. Despite an intensive training, learning a lot of new techniques for analyzing iEEG data, and piloting a new experimental design, I also enjoyed meeting new colleagues, to learn about their work, and have interesting discussions with different members of the department. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to attend a Social Neuroscience Symposium held in Brussels while I was doing my training stay in Ghent.”   Leonie Koban, trainee 2011

Application Deadlines: February 15, June 15 and October 15 every year
