About

The Brain and Mind programme at the University of Helsinki is based on a multidisciplinary network of leading neuroscience research groups at the University of Helsinki and Aalto University. 

Overview

The doctoral candidates from the Brain and Mind programme at the University of Helsinki have a background in medicine, biosciences, psychology, cognitive sciences, humanities, technology or physics and chemistry.

Programme highlights

The research strategies are strongly integrative, implying that questions are addressed at different levels of organization (from molecules to behavior), at different stages of development, and under both normal and pathophysiological conditions. 

In addition to basic research, a number of the research groups are also developing applications relevant for pharmaceutical companies, for the clinic, and for novel technologies to be used in research. 

In view of the integrative nature of research training in B&M, we do not support pure methods-development projects. 

Rather, all new methodologies developed as part of a doctoral thesis project should be applied to data collection or analysis.

Programme Structure

Research and doctoral training in the B&M includes the following fields of science:

  • Developmental neuroscience
  • Excitability, synaptic transmission, and neuronal networks
  • Disorders of the nervous system
  • Sensory and motor systems
  • Neuroimmunology, neuroendocrine systems and sleep
  • Cognition and behavior
  • Systems and computational neuroscience
