"Maarten Immink"

My research focuses on mind, brain and human performance. More specifically, I am interested in furthering our understanding of the neurocognitive processes that underlie the acquisition of skilled movement. This understanding is essential to informing the development of effective training programs in industry, defence and sport settings, and clinical movement rehabilitation interventions. In addition to optimizing skill training environments, I am interested in enhancing the individual’s capacity for learning and performance through cognitive enhancement techniques involving mindfulness and exercise cognitive training modalities and non-invasive brain stimulation.
