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:
- 0.8 million on congenital amaurosis and Parkinson’s disease
- Spinoza prize laureates concerned about planned NWO reorganization
- Winke Francx obtains Frye stipend
- Synchrony in communicating brains
- NWO funding to study the microbiome in autism
- NWO grant to reveal brain mechanisms of satiation
- Floris de Lange now member of KNAW's Young Academy
