Organisational unit profile

Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences
.

The Research Institute BCN-BRAIN (‘Research Institute for Neurosciences and Healthy Ageing’) was established in 2005. Itsmission is to promote research that is aimed at understanding the function of the healthy brain and dysfunction of the nervous system with reference to neurological and psychiatric disorders. Its research also emphasizes translational collaboration between lab-based and hospital-based researchers integrating different levels of neuroscience research.

In addition to its scientific aims, BCN-BRAIN’s mission also entails education and (research) training. The institute, therefore, participates in the Research School of Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences (BCN) and the Graduate School of Medical Sciences (GSMS). BCN-BRAIN educates and trains (research) master and PhD students to become independent neuroscience researchers.
