25 years of BCN

14 November 2012

Five faculties collaborate closely in the Research School of Behavioral and Cognitive Neurosciences (BCN). BCN researchers study the physiological and pathological processes in the nervous system using cellular, behavioural and modelling techniques. The research relates specifications of brain activity at molecular and cellular levels to analysis of physical and mental operations, up to the complex level of information processing. BCN recently celebrated its silver anniversary. BCN’s scientific director Prof. Erik Boddeke reviews the past 25 years.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
