Institute presentation

The Behavioural Science Institute (BSI) is a research institute of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Radboud University Nijmegen. In 2010 BSI received a highly selective official recognition as a graduate school by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The mission of the BSI is to conduct top level research on human behaviour. In addition to this fundamental aim, we aim at societal relevance (to influence behaviour). BSI has state-of-the-art research facilities for observational studies, experiments, eye-tracking studies, EEG measurements and GSR recording, psychobiological research, and behavioural measurements in both real and 3D virtual environments.

The BSI participates in the Donders Institute, which offers cognitive neuroscientists a unique, multidisciplinary working and learning environment with opportunities for developing expertise in a diversity of research areas and techniques. It is equipped with four MRI scanners (7T, 3T, 1.5T), a 275-channel MEG system, an EEG-TMS laboratory, several (MR-compatible) EEG systems, and high-performance computational facilities.
