Research

The department of Integrative Neurophysiology (INFlab) focusses on how circuits in the brain give rise to behaviour and cognition. With the research teams we address a wide range of exciting topics in Neuroscience research with the latest techniques.

What makes us human? Detailed cellular maps of the entire human

An international team of neuroscientists under leadership of Ed Lein and Hongkui Zeng worked on studies to map the cell types that make up the human brain. VU scientists Natalia Goriounova, Christiaan de Kock and Huib Mansvelder and their teams also contributed to this together with neurosurgeons from the VUmc.

Fast neural computation at the basis of cognition

The speed at which the human brain processes information is higher than in other animal species. Neuroscientist René Wilbers discovered that by examining millions of brain cells collected from a live sample of brain tissue.
