    I've seen Sarah speak multiple times - at international conferences such as the OHBM, in our institutes group meetings, or in public sci-comm events organized by the Juelich research center. Her presentations are spot on for the given target audience, clear, and engaging. She's a great role model for numerous young scientist.

  • Michel Thiebaut de Schotten (Group leader/ Director/ Head of Department - Bcblab) Jun 14, 2019

    I saw 2 talks from Sarah Genon. She gave great talks and is very knowledgable. HIghly recommended!

  • Thomas Yeo (Assistant Professor - National University of Singapore) Jun 13, 2019

    I saw Sarah gave a talk at the Noosa-Whistler workshop in 2019. She is an excellent speaker and is highly knowledgeable. I highly recommend her.

    After reading her 2018 article on TICS, I and my colleague Fabrizio met Sarah when we invited her to comment on one of the webinars on philosophy of neuroscience we organized within the project Neural Mechanisms Online. We were positively impressed by her openness to dialogue. We were very glad that she accepted our invitation to join us in Lucca for the 2019 midterm conference of the Italian Association of Cognitive Science ( We very much appreciated her succesful effort to curtail the talk at the right level of technicality for our interdisciplinary audience: the speech was clear, interesting, and most importantly it was very honest about the actual limits and possibilities -- unlike the many talks where speakers try (so to speak) to 'sell their research'! Last but not least, as far as my knowledge everybody appreciated her niceness and genuinity during the social moments of the conference. (I surely did!). Having here at your meeting would turn out to be one of the best deal you might make :-)

    I saw Sarah present her work on the hippocampus at the Summer Whistler Conference in March 2019. She left the audience with a full and rounded understanding of the concepts, as well as the issues still present in the field. A really engaging and thought-provoking speaker.

  • Christina Schmidt (Associate Professor - GIGA-CRC in Vivo Imaging) Mar 26, 2019

    I had the pleasure to assist to a talk given by Dr. Genon recently. I was impressed by the work she presented, the way she elaborated the underlying concepts and the critical view she is applying to the field of neuroimaging. It was an inspiring presentation, applying forefront analysis techniques that her group developped in recent publications. Date: 25/03/2019 GIGA-CRC Seminar, University of Liège We performed a PhD in the same lab and pursued careers in different research fields since then.

    I attended two talks of Sarah on the topics of functional cognitive mapping and brain parcellation, using neuroimaging data, in the course day of OHBM2018-Singapore and in an internal meeting of the Human Brain Project. Sarah has a very good cadence and flow of speech. I found her talks not only scientifically very interesting and timely but also very well articulated.
