Leiden Institute for Brain and Cognition

Welcome to the Leiden Institute for Brain and Cognition (LIBC). The LIBC is an interfaculty center for interdisciplinary research on brain and cognition, based on collaboration between the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) and the Faculties of Humanities, Science, and Social and Behavioural Sciences of Leiden University. The LIBC is part of the university research profile area ‘Brain Function and Dysfunction over the Lifespan’. The research topics range from language processing to cognitive robotics, and from psychiatric disorders to neuro-pharmacology, which are organized along the lines of four main research areas, or so-called ‘hotspots’. Current hotspots are: LIBC-Junior, LIBC-Language, LIBC-Stress and LIBC-Pharma.
