Fields of Scholarship
  • Computational neuroscience
  • Systems neuroscience
  • Learning and memory
  • Hippocampus

Honours and Awards
  • 2019 ERC Advanced Grant
  • 2018 The paper by Benchenane et al. 2010 was selected by the journal Neuron as one of their “Top 30 in the last 30 years”
  • 2015 The plan “Neurotech-NL” that I coordinated, for a consortium for the development of neurotechnology in the Netherlands was recognized by the Royal Academy of Sciences in the Netherlands. The plan is currently being implemented under multiple different forms.
  • 2014 The paper by McNaughton, Battaglia, Jensen, Moser and Moser (Nature Reviews Neuroscience 2006) was mentioned in the motivation for the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine to Edvard and May-Britt Moser. That paper delineated a functional framework for the role of entorhinal grid cells in spatial cognition that is still taken as a reference (>1200 citations to this date). I led the computational modelling effort in this study.
  • 2010 “Prix la Recherche” for best work in Neuroscience from French speaking countries (Benchenane et al. Neuron 2010)
