Tjerk Gutteling is a postdoctoral researcher at the neuronal oscillations group of Ole Jensen as of January 2016. His main interests lie in modulatory effects on perception in the broad sense. He is currently investigating oscillatory mechanisms of perceptual selection, using MEG and rapid frequency tagging.
Before Tjerk Gutteling joined the neuronal oscillations group at the University of Birmingham he worked at the sensorimotor lab of Pieter Medendorp at the Donders Institute (Radboud University), were the focus was on spatial cognition and the influences of self-motion on perception, using a vestibular sled with electro-encephalography (EEG) and transcranial current stimulation (tCS).
Tjerk Gutteling obtained his PhD at the University Medical Center Utrecht under the supervision of Bas Neggers. There, he investigated influences of action preparation on perception for both eye movement and skeletomotor actions (such as grasping). Tjerk Gutteling obtained his degrees in artificial intelligence and cognitive neuroscience at Utrecht University.
