Brain disorders are among the most prevalent and debilitating diseases. Because they are chronic, quality of life and socio-economic prospects are dramatically impaired.
Increased life expectancy further enhances the impact of brain dysfunction on society. In coming decades this burden will grow into one of most pressing and costly problems of the EU.
BrainTrain builded on our knowledge of genome information and exploits innovative technologies to unravel the (dys)function of living neurons, networks and the whole brain.
BrainTrain delivered 17 skilled PhD students prepared for future challenges in neuroscience. >Summary of the project
