Ilja Sligte is an Assistant Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the department of Brain and Cognition. His main research focus is on the brain mechanisms underlying visual sensory memory, visual working memory and consciousness. His other lines of research explore whether cognition can be enhanced with the use of brain stimulation. To answer these research question, the following techniques are employed: 1) psychophysical tests, 2) eyetracking, 3) EEG; event-related potentials and time-frequency analyses, 4) MRI; link between anatomy and behavior (VBM, DTI, MRS) and link between functional activity and behavior (fMRI), 5) brain stimulation with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial electrical stimulation (TES; tDCS, tACS, tRNS).
