The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour is a world-class research centre devoted to understanding the mechanistic underpinnings of human cognition and behavior in health and disease. The Institute is home to more than 600 researchers from 35 countries who share the common goal of contributing to the advancement of the brain-, cognitive- and behavioral sciences through investigator-driven research, and improving health, education and technology by applying advances in this field. The Institute’s mission includes conducting interdisciplinary research of excellence at the unique interface between genetic, molecular and cellular processes at one end and computational, system-level neuroscience with cognitive and behavioral analysis at the other end. Within this range we focus on four research themes:
- Newton International Fellowship for Freek van Ede
- Nijmegen researchers identify new genes for brain structure
- Cognomics identifies new genes for brain structure
- Donders Institute receives new colloquium room
- Are you interested in the Brain Awareness Week?
- Rubicon grant on mutual understanding
- Hermesdorf International Prize for Marijn Kroes
Donders Scientific Integrity
The Donders Institute deems any action that violates the principles of research integrity, as laid out in its Code of Conduct for Scientific Practice, as "research misconduct". Read more about our Scientific Integrity policy here.
At Donders Wonders, a team of enthusiastic PhD students and postdocs of the Donders Institute blog about their research and fascination for science.
