The research group of Dr. Rick Helmich ("Systems Neurology") is centered at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (DCCN
). DCCN is a top scientific institute that is part of the Donders Institute of Radboud University. The mission of DCCN is to conduct cutting-edge fundamental research in cognitive neuroscience. Much of the rapid progress in this field is being driven by the development of complex neuroimaging techniques for measuring activity in the human brain - an area in which the Centre plays a leading role.
The Centre also aims to establish how the different brain areas coordinate their activity with very high temporal precision to enable human and animal cognition. The Centre is equipped with four MRI scanners (7T, 3x 3T), a 275-channel MEG system, an EEG-TMS laboratory, several (MR-compatible) EEG systems, and high-performance computational facilities.
Our internationally renowned centre currently hosts more than 200 PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers from more than 25 countries, offering a stimulating and multidisciplinary research environment.Research Institutes
At the moment there are more than 1,300 PhD candidates at our medical hospital. This number includes PhD candidates on our pay roll as well as external candidates (those employed somewhere else but researching on our premises).
- Radboud Institute for Health Sciences: ± 700
- Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences: ± 400
- Donders Center for Medical Neurosciences: ± 200
