NEW website for the Doctoral Programme Brain & Mind (B&M), University of Helsinki was launched in November 2017.

Doctoral Programme Brain & Mind (B&M) is one of eight doctoral programmes of the Doctoral School in Health Sciences (DSHealth) at the University of Helsinki. B&M is based on a multidisciplinary network of leading neuroscience research groups at the University of Helsinki and Aalto University. The doctoral candidates have a background in medicine, biosciences, psychology, cognitive sciences, humanities, technology or physics and chemistry. 

Research and doctoral training in the B&M includes the following fields of science:

  • Developmental neuroscience
  • Excitability, synaptic transmission, and neuronal networks
  • Disorders of the nervous system
  • Sensory and motor systems
  • Neuroimmunology, neuroendocrine systems and sleep
  • Cognition and behavior
  • Systems and computational neuroscience

The research strategies are strongly integrative, implying that questions are addressed at different levels of organization (from molecules to behavior), at different stages of development, and under both normal and pathophysiological conditions. In addition to basic research, a number of the research groups are also developing applications relevant for pharmaceutical companies, for the clinic, and for novel technologies to be used in research.


Aivot ja mieli (Brain & Mind) on neurotieteen tohtoriohjelma, johon kuuluu tutkimusryhmiä ja tohtorikoulutettavia Helsingin yliopistosta ja Aalto-yliopistosta. Tohtoriohjelmaan kuuluvissa ryhmissä tutkitaan neuronaalisia ilmiöitä molekyylitasolta solu-, systeemi- ja käyttäytymistasolle.
