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:
- Joris Veltman receives King Faisal International Prize
- Two new metabolic diseases unraveled
- Difficult grammar affects music experience
- Synchronized brain waves in distant regions combine memories
- Disentangling the molecular landscape of cognitive (dys)function
- Brain waves combine memories
- Kramer Pollnow Prize for Nanda Lambregts-Rommelse
