Welcome on the site of the School for Mental Health and Neuroscience, Maastricht University.

MHeNS has its niche
in the complex interplay between basic brain mechanisms, brain/neurocognitive function and psychopathology, with emphasis on prevalent psychiatric, neuropsychiatric and neurological conditions.
The strength
of MHeNS
lies in the translational aspects of fundamental neuroscience towards applied neurodegenerative and neurological neuropsychiatric strategies. We work with specific animal models and large cohorts of patients so we perform research from the cell to the human being.

MHeNS functions as the coordinator of larger networks. We are the coordinator of the European Graduate School of Neuroscience (EURON), coordinator of the European Alzheimer Disease Network (DESCRIPA) and coordinator of EU-GEI, a grant on gene-environment interactions in schizophrenia.
