Profile Information

The Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience conducts basic and strategic research in the neurosciences,  focusing in particular on the brain and the visual system.

The Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience examines how the human brain makes awareness, perception, movement, learning, social interaction and other cognitive functions possible. It also studies how brain disorders can disrupt these functions.   

The institute encompasses the Netherlands Brain Bank and the Netherlands Sleep Registry, which offer Dutch and international researchers facilities for studying human brain tissue, cognitive functions and sleep patterns.
