Brain, Body and Cognition Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The BBCO research group focuses its research on the comprehensive study of mental processes and their biological (brain and body) correlates in different domains of human functioning and behavior, such as cognition, social judgment, affect, well-being and sleep. Without doubt, the study of the brain and body, and its related mental processes is at the forefront of current research in many disciplines of psychology. Together with behavioral ...

VIB CMN - Neurodegenerative Brain Diseases Group University of Antwerp

Our focus is on genetics, genomics and neuropathology of the neurodegenerative brain diseases Alzheimer's disease (AD), frontal temporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) and Parkinson's disease (PD), attempting to find molecular mechanisms of protein aggregation in dementia. We systematical collect large samples of patients and relatives for genetic studies aiming at identifying disease genes using either a positional cloning strategy in multiplex ...

Laboratory of Glia Biology (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research) KU Leuven

Responsible

The long-term goal of Laboratory of Glia Biologyis to understand the molecular mechanisms that control development and function of astrocytes in vivo, and how they interact with neurons.
Our strategy is to use astrocytes isolated from mouse brain as a starting point. This allows us to effectively take a “bottom up” approach to astrocyte function. In a first step, we are combining state-of-the-art biochemical and physiological techniques ...

Laboratory for the Research of Neurodegenerative Diseases (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research) KU Leuven

Responsible

The Laboratory for the Research of Neurodegenerative Diseases performes research into the fundamental molecular processes that underlay neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Their work has also contributed to insights into general physiologically mechanisms, in particular, the understanding of regulated intramembrane proteolysis as an important signaling mechanism in health and disease. They have demonstrated the ...

Laboratory of Membrane Trafficking (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research) KU Leuven

Responsible

The research in the Laboratory of Membrane Trafficking is focused on the cell biology and trafficking of the g-secretase components. This multiprotein complex has been implicated in a new signal transduction paradigm, called Regulated Intramembrane Proteolysis or RIP and is critical in a wide variety of important cellular activities including embryogenesis, brain development and haematopoiesis. RIP also plays a central role in Alzheimer's ...
