About the employer

Our brain is our most complex and fascinating organ. Our brain is responsible for everything we do, think and experience. What mechanisms lie hidden within those one hundred billion nerve cells, linked by one hundred thousand kilometers of connections? What is the role of electrical and chemical signals? What goes on within a single cell, and how does this cell communicate with other cells? What is consciousness?

The scientists of the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience are working to answer these questions. We carry out experiments in humans, but also in animals to gain new insights into the functioning of the living brain.

The institute houses the Netherlands Brain Bank to permit the examination of post-mortem human tissue. The institute also houses the Sleep Lab in which the researchers work together with volunteers to learn more about sleeplessness and depression.

The workings of the brain are still a puzzle. It is our task to solve it.
