Behavioral and translational neuroscience
Using a combination of traditional behavioral testing, modern manipulation methods, and advanced imaging, our research mainly focuses on the neurobiological basis of behavior, both in physiological and pathological circumstances.
Our research group consists of researchers with a variety of backgrounds. Since summer 2019, the group consists of two teams: Snoeren-Heijkooplab and McCutcheonlab. The common theme of our research is the brain reward system: Snoerenlab investigates the neural regulation of sexual behavior as natural reward, and McCutcheonlab studies the neural control of protein appetite.
We are proud to share that our research group has been awarded with the annual Research Prize of the Faculty of Health Sciences at UiT The Arctic University of Norway.
Are you a passionate researcher at the interface of Machine Learning, Data Science and Neuroscience, whose goal is to advance our understanding of the principles of sociosexual behavior in biological networks?

A few months ago, Eelke was challenged to crochet a blanket with the image of a neuron. That challenge had to be accomplished, of course! Now, four months later, the blanket is really here!
