Jacob Jolij

Dr Jacob Jolij is a cognitive neuroscientist and works at the Department of Experimental Psychology of the University of Groningen. Jolij graduated from the University of Amsterdam, where he also gained his PhD, specializing in the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to study conscious and unconscious visual processing in early visual areas. Subsequently, he worked as a postdoc researcher at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne and as a university lecturer in Cognitive Psychology and Neurosciences at the University of Exeter.

Jolij studies how perception is related to reality. Is what we see and feel really ‘out there’? To answer this question, he uses brain imaging techniques such as EEG (‘brain waves’) to measure brain activity in real time, and relate that to what people see, hear and feel. Jolij is a board member of the Dutch Psychonomics Society, heads the newly founded Heymans Anomalous Cognition Group, an international research consortium aimed at the systematic, skeptic study of anomalous (‘paranormal’) phenomena, and writes a regular column in the Dutch journal for Parapsychology and Consciousness Research.
