About the author
Roel M. Willems obtained his PhD from Radboud University Nijmegen on a thesis investigating how information from spoken language and from co-speech gestures is integrated in the human brain. He later investigated the involvement of sensorimotor cortices in language understanding, using methodologies like fMRI, EEG, and TMS. After a postdoctoral visit to UC Berkeley, he is now at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, both in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. His current research uses neuroimaging methods to gain insight into simulation during narrative comprehension.
