The Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience (NIN) is a merger of the
Netherlands Institute for Brain Research and the
Netherlands Ophthalmic Research Institute.
The NIN carries out fundamental neuroscience research with special emphasis on the brain and the visual system. Our research focusses on development, plasticity and ageing and is often linked to clinical research questions.
The scientific structure comprises three levels of biological complexity:
- genetic and molecular approaches
- cellular approaches and network function
- system approaches
The research program is carried out in 18 departments.
In addition, the NIN includes the Netherlands Brain Bank.
