iBBA - institute for research on brain, body and behaviour

Institute Brain and Behaviour Amsterdam

iBBA is a research institute within the Faculty of Behavioural and Movement Sciences, that brings together excellent research into the psychological, neural and cognitive aspects underling human behavior at different levels, from cognitive, social and learning processes, to sports and motor perception.

The goal of iBBA is to foster the exchange and development of knowledge for advanced methods of experimental research. The core mission is to develop and test fundamental theories of mind, brain, body movement and/or behaviour. The institute achieves this mission through combining world class-expertise in terms of methods and state of the art analyses, through combining and strengthening infrastructure (from labs to scanners), quality control (e.g., data management; from acquisition to storing and sharing data), communication profile (towards funding agencies and society) and by making research useful for economic or societal utilisation (valorisation).  

Our members work in the field of human movement sciences, experimental and applied psychology, clinical, neuro and developmental psychology and biological psychology.
