CIBR Collegium

CIBR maintains an e-mail list for researchers and doctoral students (also brain motivated master students). The mailing list is mainly used in informing courses and trainings, events and other current affairs organized by CIBR. The aim of the Cibr Collegium is to build an interdisciplinary JYU research network in the field of cognitive neuroscience. The mailing list may also use as a channel to inform of things interesting to the brain for example books, studies, conferences and congresses.

Contact cibr-info@jyu.fi to be added to or removed from the CIBRCollegium -mailing list. Or go Here to do it yourself.

Neurocenter Finland

CIBR is part of Neurocenter Finland, which is a Finnish cooperation network for neurosciences and research. Our local network is called Jyväskylä Brain and Mind.

It maintains comprehensive and up-to-date information on research projects, infrastructures, methods, materials and innovations in the field of neuroscience in Finland. Neurocenter Finland promotes cross-boundary partnerships between academic, private and third sector actors. Its objective is to establish a network that supports the emergence of new proposals for collaborative research, innovation and business activities – with the aim of promoting brain health.

In the beginning of 2021, CIBR directory board installed a group of researchers to coordinate shared use of existing brain research infrastructure and to plan acquisition of new equipment. The board aims at promoting the use of the brain research labs across the University and discusses good practices in sharing, maintenance and support of the facilities. In future, all brain research infrastructure will be visible and available via a single contact point. In strategic terms, the board will develop JYU brain research infrastructure to meet researchers’ future needs.
