NCU research Projects – awarded 2010
Crossing borders. That is the common denominator of all projects financially supported by NC Utrecht, briefly introduced below. Each project transgresses the boundaries of the usual monodisciplinary endeavors, either by combining animal with human research approaches, by linking linguistics to e.g. cognitive psychology or using a joined preclinical and clinical approach.
They all build on strong research expertise. The topics may be diverse, yet they share the intention to start new and exciting collaborations.
Below you find the projects currently financed by NCU. If you click on the link you will find a description and in some cases an brief video-clip.
