Research is an essential building block of the Department of Neurology. Our research focusses on the neural basis of cognitive, social and affective processes, as well as on sensorimotor systems and neurobiochemistry. Our research groups use methods that range from animal research and experimental neurochemistry to functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and videooculography, to name a few. The Department of Neurology has tight collaborations with the Institute for Clinical and Molecular Neurogenetics, which is also a section of the Neurology Department.
The Department of Neurology is integrated in the Center of Brain, Behavior and Metabolism (CBBM), an interdisciplinary institution directed at the research of the interaction between brain, behavior and metabolism, and its application in experimental and clinical medicine.
