Donders Centre for Neuroscience
At the Donders Centre for Neuroscience (DCN) we aim to understand the complex neural networks underlying perceptual, motor and cognitive brain functions. We study these networks by employing experimental as well as computational approaches.
In the spotlight
NWO Grant for Advancement of Cochlear Implant Algorithms
The NWO has awarded funding to OtoControl-2.0, led by John van Opstal, under the Open Technology Programme. OtoControl-2.0 is one of seven projects selected to receive a total funding of 5.4 million Euros from NWO, and an additional 1.4 million Euros from investing organizations. The primary objective of this project is to develop improved algorithms for cochlear implants.

Neurobiology is a specialisation within the Master’s programme Medical Biology, Molecular Life Sciences, and Science (Biology-Chemistry).
This specialisation crosses the boundaries of multiple sub-fields of molecular and cellular biology, life sciences, medicine and behavioural sciences.
Neurophysics is a specialisation within the Master’s programme in Physics and Astronomy, and the Master of Science (Biology-Physics/Physics-Informatics).
We focus on understanding the neuro-computational mechanisms of the brain and how this knowledge can be used for relevant applications, such as robotics and neuro-technology.
