Research to understand the evolving and waning function of the healthy brain over a lifetime. We are the UMCG Research Institute for Neurosciences and Healthy Brain Ageing. Institute
Neuroscience holds the key to understanding the brain. People need good brain health to have a a good quality of life. We need to develop more effective treatments for people with mental health disorders, therefore we need to understand the function of a healthy brain and how it differs from an unhealthy brain.

We promote research aimed at understanding the function of the healthy brain and dysfunction of the nervous system with reference to neurological and psychiatric disorders.

Our research emphasizes translational collaboration between lab-based and hospital-based researchers integrating different levels of neuroscience research.
