The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at Radboud University is a leading centre of research expertise with a strong international reputation. Our scientific output is prolific and renowned for its quality.

Over 600 researchers work here on unravelling the mechanisms of the brain. Our research includes cognition and behaviour in humans as well as on the neuronal substrate, including the genetic, molecular and cellular processes that underlie cognition and behaviour. Within this range we focus on four main themes:

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". For instance, fabrication or falsification of data, and plagiarism are considered major misconduct, about which the Donders contact persons on Scientific Integrity should be informed. The following policy is in place for this kind of cases.
