About us

Neuroinformatics is an emerging field of study that uses informatics to bridge the gap between (1) the large volume of complex or high-dimensional data being generated in neuroscience labs and (2) the computational models and analysis methods needed to analyze and interpret these data, with the aim of understanding brain function and malfunction. Key ingredients are databasing, data mining & data sharing; international standards & nomenclature; data analysis and visualization; and computational models.
Go to our full mission statement.

NeuroInformatics.NL is driven by a coordinating team and a steering committee. Financial support comes from NWO through its National Initiative on Brain and Cognition (NIHC) programme.
