Measuring neurochemistry

Advanced Methods Topic

Various research groups at FSW and LUMC are investigating neurotransmitters and hormones, either directly or their impact on particular cognitive, motivational, affective, and social processes or diseases in which these and other functions are affected. Unfortunately, the means to assess the underlying neurochemistry is very limited and indirect, such as genetics or clinical biomarkers. The aim of the Advanced Methods Topic "Measuring neurochemistry" is to join forces in combining or developing novel techniques to assess neurochemical processes regulating the human brain and mind.
