Neurobiology is a rapidly expanding field that will face many exciting challenges over the next decades. Implementation of molecular biological techniques and bioinformatics, now allow a more in depth evaluation of the role of genes in complex behaviours. Similarly, developments in image analysis and the application of powerful data acquisition/processing devices now allow us to study activity patterns in awake human brain, with great spatial and temporal resolution. In the near future, disturbed function in the diseased brain can thus be accurately diagnosed in an earlier stage. This will provide well-defined endpoint for novel strategies to treat or even prevent these brain diseases. Clearly, the field of neurobiology is very much research oriented. This research generally flourishes when research groups join forces and combine their respective expertise to work in unison on defined research questions. One of the main goals of the Institute of Neurobiology under the Graduate School is to provide a stimulating scientific environment for young researcher working in the Neurobiology. The program includes access to lectures of international leaders in the field and intensive supervision of research projects. This program offers a solid preparation for getting started in a highly attractive and exciting Neurobiology.
