Vincent Koppelmans is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry. He earned a Master of Science degree in Clinical Neuropsychology from the VU University, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and a Master of Science degree in Health Sciences from the Erasmus University, Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He obtained his PhD in Neuro-epidemiology from the same Erasmus University for his dissertation on The Late Effects of Adjuvant Chemotherapy on Brain Function and Structure.

Dr. Koppelmans completed his postdoctoral training in Neural Control of Movement in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. He was awarded a fellowship from the National Space Biomedical Research Institute to investigate exercise as a potential countermeasure for brain changes that occur as a result of long-duration bed rest. Following his postdoctoral training he joined the Kinesiology Department of the University of Michigan as an Assistant Research Scientist. He is interested in disease and age related brain structural and functional neuroplasticity and their relation with cognitive function and motor behavior.
