Raner Goebel has been selected as a new member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences

Our CEO, Rainer Goebel, has been selected as a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. The royal academy (in Dutch: KNAW = Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen) writes:
"Rainer Goebel (born 1964), Maastricht University and the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, has conducted pioneering research in the fields of cognitive neuroscience and brain imaging. He is the developer of Brainvoyager, an fMRI data analysis software tool that allows for real-time visualisation of brain activity and of parts of the brain. Among other things, the tool enables patients suffering from depression or Parkinson’s disease to treat themselves using neurofeedback based on fMRI data from their own brains."
Academy members are prominent researchers active in all disciplines. New members are nominated by peers from within and outside the Academy. The Academy has approximately five hundred members, divided between its Humanities and Social Sciences Division and its Science Division. Members are appointed for life. The new KNAW members will be installed during a ceremony at the Academy’s Trippenhuis in September 2014.
