Our researchers work on issues that affect social and human themes, examining the fundamental basis of human behaviour. Researchers also focus on the treatment of behavioural and psychological disorders or intervention programmes in the fields of health and education. Analyses of and solutions for social-cultural issues are important subjects too.

Research institutes

Our research is housed in three research institutes:

The Donders Centre for Cognition (DCC) is part of the Donders Institute. At the DCC, research is conducted in the fields of brain, cognition and behaviour.

The Behavioural Science Institute (BSI) researches human behaviour from various disciplines, centring on research into development and learning, psychopathology, healthcare and well-being, social processes and communication.

The Radboud Social Cultural Research (RSCR) focuses on research questions about inequality, cohesion and modernisation in both Western and non-Western societies.
