What is cognitive neuroscience? As my professor once said, it is the overlapping science of the ‘dry and the wet’ part of the brain.
Emotions are created in the brain: Neuroscience research in the past decades has shown that our brain gives meaning to our experiences and sensations, through concepts such as emotions.
Down syndrome is one of the most common chromosomal diseases in humans. Researcher Fidler and her colleagues argue that understanding early cognitive development is important in improving preventative care.
The Food and Cognition project will form a cluster of partners in the East of the Netherlands, who will exchange knowledge on the topics of eating behavior, targeted nutrition and enabling technologies.

Worm infections can cause cognitive problems. But it’s unclear if it affects learning, memory, or both.
It is pretty well-known that stress and anxiety have an effect on the immune system. This can be a real problem, especially in psychiatric disorders.
Preterm birth is a major problem in neonatal healthcare. Erik van Tilborg developed a new animal model to closely mimic this clinical situation, an important step in finding new treatment options.
A recent study shows that the use of anabolic steroids diminishes the positive effects of exercise in rats.
Knockout of Down syndrome gene in zebrafish leads to autistic-like behaviors: Though earlier knockout models in mice failed, researchers have developed a successful zebrafish model.
About zebrafish and their important role in finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
A zebrafish is not just a zebrafish. Strain differences in zebrafish behavior and physiology.
Manually observing chickens in barns is a tedious job to which ultra-wideband tracking offers a solution. But does it interfere with normal behavior?
Is it justified to use male mice only in behavioral studies, as many diseases affect men and women differently? This might be the most important argument to favor including female mice in certain studies.
How do mice act in complete darkness? Ann-Kristina Fritz and her colleagues ordered a large, round open field with IR backlight, custom made by Noldus, to investigate.
