Spinoza Centre for Neuroimaging

The Spinoza Centre for Neuroimaging gives neuroscientists access to ultra-sensitive MRI scanners for basic research into brain function and brain disorders. The Spinoza Centre encourages collaboration in the Amsterdam region and offers a national infrastructure where possible.

The Spinoza Centre concentrates on the following areas of research into healthy and diseased brain function:

  • cognition (research into the function of processes such as attention, memory, planning and decision-making)
  • emotion (research into the neural basis of interactions between emotion and behaviour)
  • clinical neuroscience (research into the causes of psychiatric disorders)
  • methods and statistics (development of methods for data acquisition and statistical analysis).

The Spinoza Centre has two 3 Tesla scanners and one 7 Tesla MRI scanner. They can produce very high-resolution images of brain function, structure and metabolism. The Spinoza Centre also has laboratories for complementary techniques (EEG, TMS, tDCS) and for behavioural experiments.
