Hello! My name is Thomas. I was born in 1998. I started my bachelor technical medicine in 2017, but after finishing the bachelor I quickly realized that the technical aspect of technical medicine was not technical enough. So I started a masters in biomedical engineering. I have been doing that now for two years (started in 2020) and I absolutely fell in love with signals from the human body and trying to mathematically understand how the brain works. You give me a thalamocortical model and I will spend hours trying to analyze its dynamics. That is why I am very excited to work on my master thesis which focusses on the source localization and pathophysiological mechanisms of generalized periodic discharges using, among other things, the above mentioned model.
During my master thesis I will be working on the source localization and pathophysiological mechanisms of generalized periodic discharges (GPD’s) in postanoxic comatose patients. Understanding where GPD’s are generated and how they come into being could give more insight in the prognosis and treatment of these patients.
