  • The interpretation of hidden and non-coding DNA variants leads to novel genetic diagnoses hesis

    The interpretation of hidden and non-coding DNA variants leads to novel genetic diagnoses hesis

    Worldwide, approximately 300 million people have a rare disease, with at least 40% caused by genetic factors.

  • Denis le Bihan

    CANCELLED: DCCN Colloquium Denis Le Bihan

    Functional “distances” between neural nodes, depend on both the spatial distances between nodes and the time to propagate between them, through a connectome spacetime with four intricated dimensions, a view common to the relativity theory.

  • Portrait picture Anne Collins

    Tutorial by Anne Collins (UC Berkeley)

    Anne Collins will give a tutorial on computational modeling of behavioral learning data in Trigons Red Room (01.201)

    PostDoc Ponders - Start of Summer

    Donders PostDoc Ponders event.

  • Portrait picture Anne Collins

    DCCN Colloquium Anne Collins

    Reinforcement learning frameworks have contributed tremendously to our better understanding of learning processes in brain and behavior.

  • Stepping out of the clinic: towards objective, real-life monitoring of Parkinson’s disease

    Stepping out of the clinic: towards objective, real-life monitoring of Parkinson’s disease

    Can the gait pattern in daily life be used as an indicator of the severity of Parkinson’s disease? This thesis shows that this is possible with a single motion sensor, worn on the ankle, lower back or wrist.

  • Donders Poster Session 2022

    Donders Session: Poster Session

    During the yearly Poster Sessions, early career researchers show their work. Within each of the four Donders research themes a small group of judges inspected the posters and decided which one presented their work best.

  • Inside Out - How can the internal structure of the mental lexicon support autonomous foreign vocabulary learning?

    Inside Out - How can the internal structure of the mental lexicon support autonomous foreign vocabulary learning?

    In this thesis, we explored whether a brain-inspired structure could be used to enhance autonomous learning of new foreign vocabulary. We know that the word knowledge in our brain, the mental lexicon, is organized based on similarity.

  • Exploring new treatments for vision loss in ABCA4 retinal disease

    Exploring new treatments for vision loss in ABCA4 retinal disease

    This doctoral thesis investigates the impact of genetic variants in the ABCA4 gene, which can lead to Stargardt disease type 1 (STGD1), a common inherited retinal disorder.

  • Donders Graduate School Day

    Donders Graduate School Day

    The Graduate School Day for our PhD candidates and CNS Master students will be an afternoon full of workshops and fun activities followed by a dinner.

  • Simulations and deep learning for the optimization of cortical visual prostheses

    Simulations and deep learning for the optimization of cortical visual prostheses

    Visual neuroproshetics aim to restore a rudimentary form of vision in the blind through electrical neurostimulation. To make optimal use of the limited visual information transfer, intelligent scene-processing software is essential.

  • Rick Helmich looks into camera in the Red Room

    Growing Up in Science: Rick Helmich

    Please join us for the 20th (!) edition of Growing Up in Science event of the academic year! We are delighted to have Rick Helmich in the interview chair to discuss his personal and professional journey as a clinician-scientist, past and present.

  • Prof. Shigeru Shinomoto

    DCN seminar: Prof. Shigeru Shinomoto

    Please join Professor Shinomoto's lecture On "Non-differentiable activity in the brain" at the 1st July DCN seminar. Prof. Shigeru Shinomoto is Doctor of Philosophy at the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute, Kyoto.

  • Maria Montessori building

    DCC Lecture - Brad Postle

    Brad Postle will review studies of fMRI and EEG of human volunteers performing tasks that require the flexible prioritization of information in working memory, and of recurrent neural network (RNN) simulations of these tasks.

  • Oscillatory Modulation of Neural Communication

    Oscillatory Modulation of Neural Communication

    This thesis studies how oscillations affect the sensitivity of neural tissue to new information and the ability of neural circuits to communicate.

  • DCN seminar: Dr. Brice Bathellier

    DCN seminar: Dr. Brice Bathellier

    Brice Bathellier studied Physics at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, and soon after decided to move to neuroscience starting to work on computational modeling of neural networks.
