Research Objectives

Our research is dedicated to Plasticity and Dynamics of Sensori-Motor Systems and Cognitive Systems in health and disease. We investigate those at the physiological, anatomical, behavioral and molecular level in 18 research groups.

Collaborations

The Department of Neuroscience is embedded in the dynamic, internationally competitive research community of over 40 biomedical research labs encompassing the departments of: Bioinformatics, Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Molecular Genetics, Genetic and Genetic Identification. We collaborate with universities and institutes at a national and international level and host fruitful relationships with our industry partners.

Academic excellence

The main objective of the two-year Research Master’s Program in Neuroscience is to teach and to provide training for talented students in the rapidly expanding field of neuroscience. The program prepares students for future fundamental research in various medical fields in which neuroscience is increasingly important. The program combines a broad range of tutorials and workshops in neuro-anatomy, neurophysiology, molecular biology, psychology and psychiatry with an extensive period of research training.

Department of Neuroscience is placed in the Research Tower of the Erasmus Medical Center (Ee building). The Department Chair is Prof.Dr.Chris de Zeeuw.

Recent Publications

Department of Neuroscience strives to integrate Open Access standard in compliance with Plan S of the European Research Council. As the Dutch scientific community we fully support NWO in their goal to integrate plan S by 2020. We are currently fully committed to making our publications open access via the self-archiving route (Green Road, in the Erasmus University institutional repository repub.eur.nl).
