Research facilities

To study the brain in ever greater detail and in shorter time-scales you need state-of-the-art equipment. The Donders Institute has all facilities required for studying brain, cognition and behaviour and is taking the lead in developing and implementing new techniques.

Looking at health and disease

Genetic biobanks, patient groups and animal models for Alzheimers disease, depression, schizophrenia are all available for researchers wishing to study the genetic, molecular and cellular basis of cognitive skills or the illnesses that affect them.

Looking at cognition

We have a state-of-the-art Baby Lab, including eye-tracker and EEG equipment. A cognitive artificial intelligence laboratory is used to analyze human-computer interaction as well as the dynamics of intelligent behaviour, embedded embodied cognition and information retrieval.

Looking at behaviour

Sensori-motor facilities help to answer the question how our brain and our senses work together. This is why we have a vestibular sled, which combines EEG equipment with motion-tracking devices. Reach-in' 3D visualisation and force-feedback equipment allow experiments on manual actions in rich, three-dimensional virtual reality.

Looking into the brain

Neuroimaging facilities such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at 1.5, 3 and 7 Tesla, Magnetoencephalography (MEG), Electroencephalography (EEG) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) make it possible to look inside the skull - in a variety of ways.

Sharing facilities

It is hard to transfer ideas and knowledge into concrete products or services. Many innovations require advanced and in many cases expensive facilities. The Donders Institute offers companies including start-ups and SME's to use their equipment. For more information and contact, please see:
