Speakers: Chris Baeken, MD, PhD

Chris Baeken, MD, PhD is full time associate professor at the University hospital of the Ghent University, and he is part-time associate professor affiliated with the University hospital of the Free University of Brussels, both in Belgium. As a psychiatrist his main interests are within the neurobiological field of Affective Disorders. To gain more insight in the underlying mechanisms of emotional brain processes in the ‘healthy’ as well as in the ‘mentally affected’ human brain, brain-imaging paradigms (MRI, fMRI, (S)PET,….) are used with or without the combination of neuromodulation techniques, such as rTMS and tDCS. His scientific contributions to clinical neuroscience is shown by over 200 peer-refereed scientific publications, mainly on clinical treatment, brain stimulation and neurobiology. His work has received very high international recognition from peers as can be judged from over 3000 citations to his work and an H-index of 32 (Google Scholar).
