Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience

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? The scientists of the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience are working to answer these questions.
