Measures against corona virusTest-days and intakes
We will continue with the Healthy Brain Study from July 15. All the relevant participants have been personally notified of this.
Our participants have received an extra questionnaire concerning the media attention surrounding the corona virus. Examples of questions posed are ‘What are you doing to prevent being infected?’ and ‘Are you worried about becoming infected with the corona virus?’. We know that media coverage of certain topics can influence thoughts, feelings and behaviour in everyday life. This fits well within the scope of the Healthy Brain Study.
Information for researchersAre you a researcher and interested in the datasource of the Healthy Brain Study? Contact our projectmanager Lucy Overbeek: email@example.com
Do you have a research idea, but are you looking for collaborations? Please visit the Healthy Brain Team on Mattermost to meet researchers from Radboud Campus and to discuss research ideas.
How to reach the Healthy Brain Team?

The Healthy Brain Study is a unique, long-term study carried out by Radboud University, Radboudumc and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, together with other organizations, and volunteers in their thirties.
The more we know about the brain, the more questions we can answer about how we function in our daily lives.
The Healthy Brain Study will investigate which social, biological and environmental factors influence the brain. Scientists can use the results to conduct new studies to resolve social issues. These can involve questions such as: how can I identify and prevent an upcoming burnout? With this new knowledge, we hope to learn how people can become happier, fitter, more self-reliant and more productive. We also aim to contribute to a more sustainable and affordable healthcare system.
We can all make a valuable contribution to this important research. That's why we want to involve organizations and entrepreneurs in Nijmegen and the surrounding area. With the data collected and research questions answered we can support the development of new innovations and encourage positive social impacts.
Our partners so far:
- Gemeente Nijmegen
- Radboud Universiteit
- Max Planck Instituut

Team science makes a difference!
For centuries, the individual, independent scientist – the genius – has been performing research on his own. However, nowadays, only focusing on this way of doing research is insufficient for resolving many questions of present-day science. Instead, we also need larger, systematic studies executed by teams of experts that go beyond collaborations between independent researchers. The Healthy Brain Study stimulates team science. Project leader Guillen Fernandez explains in his blog why we need this rebalancing towards ‘team science’ to achieve better results and better working conditions for the people involved.
