The Radboud University, the Radboudumc and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics have chosen “Healthy Brain” as their collaborative research theme.

Within this Healthy Brain initiative a large cohort study will be established that will strengthen existing and engage new collaborations around the Healthy Brain theme. The study is called the ‘Healthy Brain Cohort’ .
 
The goal of the Healthy Brain Cohort is to undertake an innovative approach to understand the human brain by examining the brain’s integration, individuality and dynamics. Participants are phenotyped dynamically over one year across cognitive, affective, behavioral and social domains, using questionnaires, laboratory experiments, and with repeated parameters such as experience sampling with and without wearables against a background of diverse neural and biological data. The resource will initially be available to all researchers from the Radboud University and subsequently opened to researchers worldwide .
