Sebo Uithol

Assistant Professor

Dr. S. Uithol
+31 71 527 2727

I have a background in philosophy and neuroscience. In 2012 I obtained my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. After that I worked at multiple labs throughout Europe (Parma, Berlin, Nijmegen again). Here I enjoyed collaborating with neuroscientists, neurophysiologists, (developmental) psychologists, philosophers, and anthropologists.


I am a philosopher and neuroscientist that is interested in embodied and enactive approaches to cognition. I apply these frameworks on intentional action and conceptual knowledge particularly. Particularly, I strive to formulate a non-internalist, non-representational account of these cognitive capacities.
