Welcome to ERA-NET NEURON

Research into the diseases of the brain benefits from joint funding schemes by networks of funding agencies and ministries in Europe and beyond the European borders. The ERA-Net NEURON Cofund2, as a funding platform focused on neurological and mental disorders, holds a strategic position in bringing pre-clinical and clinical research communities closer together and fostering translational research, while covering the entire value chain.

Project DiSCoVeR: Examining the synergistic effects of a cognitive control videogame and a home-based, self-administerd non-invasive brain stimulation on alleviating depression

DiSCoVeR, a multinational collaboration funded under NEURON’s JTC2018 call, is set to examine the effects of a novel, home-based treatment approach to alleviate depression. To achieve this, a videogame training cognitive control combined with non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) is self-applied by the patients in the comfort of their home, offering promising prospects for wider accessibility, compliance and effectiveness.

ELSA Project PNS: Psychiatric Neurosurgery ─ Ethical, Legal and Societal Issues

Project PNS is a multinational collaboration funded under NEURON’s JTC2015 co-funded call for research projects on ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSA) of neuroscience. The project goals were investigating ethical, legal, and societal issues of all kinds of contemporary psychiatric neurosurgery (PNS) and publishing recommendations for a responsible use of PNS.
