Personal profile


I am a neurologist: a physician trained in the diagnosis and treatment of nervous system disease. In this field I am particularly interested in movement disorders (such as Parkinson's or Huntington's Disease), functional or 'psychogenic' symptoms and neuropsychiatry, palliative care and Evidence Based Medicine (EBM). I also do research on depression and dementia.

A populariser of (medical) science through various publications and lectures, I am a frequently invited expert in the lay media. 

Lastly, I try to be a humanist in both senses of that word.


"... sedulo curavi humanas actiones non ridere, non lugere, neque detestari, sed intelligere"

"Want mochte wy salich syn sonder onze weten, soe mochte oec een steen salich syn, die en gheen weten en heeft"
Jan van Ruusbroec, Vanden blinckenden steen of het mystieke zoonschap (1343 C.E.), 632-634
