Impact of Donders neuroscience
Donders researchers developed an approach-avoidance task to measure subtle differences in motivation for different – but almost indistinguishable – Heinz tomato ketchups.
Parkinson researchers demonstrate that specialised healthcare within ParkinsonNet saves lives at lower costs.
BrainGain is a Dutch research consortium consisting of researchers, industry and potential users of Brain-Computer and Computer-Brain interfaces.
FOCOM, a consortium of companies and research institutions including the Donders Institute of Brain, Cognition and Behaviour will develop test systems, which will be able to predict the relation between nutrition and brain.
The BriteN project is aimed at finding biomarkers for the effects of nutrition on the developing child brain.
Memorising items by visually putting them in a familiar environment is a known technique that successfully helps people to memorise names, numbers, a shopping list, or even a big set of data during memory championships. Training the brain with this so-called ‘memory palace’ even improves longer term memory, Donders Institute researchers recently discovered. They published their findings in Science Advances.
