Pourquié, Valérie (author)
Human brain research is advancing, facilitated by improved high-throughput techniques and systematically preservation of brain tissue in brain banks. Due to the complex organization and regulation of the brain, most studies only focus on a single aspect of healthy and diseased samples. This research integrates analyses of the transcriptome and...

Neurosurgery is technically challenging because of the inaccessibility and sensitivity of the brain. The risk of complications for the patient is high and simulation-based training is therefore preferred. However, surgical training in cadavers and virtual reality is not satisfactory. A phantom is a model of organs or tissues consisting of tissue...

Brain, outside the body, will decay quickly, causing ex vivo studies to be difficult. Having a phantom model has a great beneficial value for numerous reasons. Phantoms are, among others, used in research centres, to validate new equipment, to develop biomechanical models or to test new treatment methods. They are representations of organs or...

The gap between predicted brain age and chronological age could serve as biomarker for early-stage neurodegeneration and as potentially as a risk indicator for dementia. We assess the utility of this age gap as a risk biomarker for incident dementia in a general elderly population. The brain age is estimated from longitudinal brain magnetic...

Van den Brink, L.O. (author)
The developing human brain is a complex process, governed by the human genome. Understanding this development process is the key to understanding not only the connections between genes and brain functioning, but can also advance knowledge about disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Autism. The BrainSpan transcriptional atlas, released in 2013 by the...
