We focus on the biological mechanisms underlying common mental health and neurological brain diseases, applying the latest technology and thereby providing new perspectives on therapy. Finding the 'cause' of brain diseases, design its 'cure' and implement this to the level of 'patient care' are all in the center of our research ambition.
Caudate nucleus involved in key sympton of insomnia. Eus van Someren and co-workers publish in BrainAlthough insomnia is common and disabling, its neural correlates remain enigmatic. Van Someren’s group used structural and functional MRI to demonstrate that hyperarousal, its clearest characteristic, involves reduced recruitment and connectivity of the left caudate that may both predispose to insomnia and perpetuate it.
