Understanding the abilities and limitations of the human brain
The fundamental research conducted at the CNC is primarily aimed at discovering the differences between the mechanisms underlying mental illnesses, such as dementia, depression, or schizophrenia. In the long run, we hope to develop and contribute to a toolbox for optimal patient care.
We support data acquisition and data analysis for researchers from the UMCG, the UG, and other parties, including clinical research organisations. Although the principal focus is on functional brain research, other types of MR scans are supported as well.
