Establishment of the Jyväskylä Centre for Interdisciplinary Brain Research

Bulletin 22.08.2012

The Board decided to establish the Jyväskylä Centre for Interdisciplinary Brain Research within the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Brain research is conducted at the University of Jyväskylä, for example, in the disciplines of psychology, musicology, health sciences, and biology of physical activity. The conditions for research and cooperation will be improved by establishing a new brain research laboratory (MEG laboratory) at the University, equipped with internationally top-level brain research technology. The research centre will cooperate closely with the Central Finland Central Hospital and research institutes relevant to the University’s research, such as the Research Institute for Olympic Sports (KIHU), the Foundation for Sport and Health Sciences (LIKES), and the Niilo Mäki Institute (NMI). Educational and research cooperation will also be developed with domestic and international universities.
