The Institute of Brain Science of National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University aims to cultivate talents with cross-disciplinary neuroscience research, including cultivating basic neuroscience and neuroinformatics professionals to engage in medical-related cross-disciplinary research, and training clinicians or cognitive neuroscientists to equip them with basic or computational neuroscience knowledge and research skills, as well as training medical imaging technology professionals, and improving the level of domestic neuroscience research and development.curriculum
Using structural and functional MRI and EEG data, we aim to develop advanced data analysis methods to investigate the role of abnormalities of brain structure and function in neuropsychiatric disorders as well as potential imaging markers.
Our institute is equiped with the overnight sleep examination facility which can be used to conduct research of sleep physiology and the mechanism of various sleep disorders through analysis of various physiological signals, including EEG, heartbeat, respiration, blood oxygen, EMG and other signals.
Out molecular neuroscience faculty work closely with clinical teams to delineate the mechanism of neurodevelopmental and neurodegenrateive disorders using state of art technology such as neural cell culture, gene transfer, neural stem cells and molecular cell biotechnology.
Our basic and clinical neuroscience faculty aim to develop precise treatment strategies for neuropsychiatric disorders from different levels using the latest technology of the neural stem cell approach and brain stimulation such as transcranial magnetic stimulation.
