Many research projects involve links between different members of the Institute as well as work with other Institute at Universityof Pécs (e.g. Medical School) and other universities in Hungary and abroad.

Our research is published in leading Hungarian and international scientific journals and disseminated at major conferences.  

We have excellent laboratory facilities, including neuroscience facilities (EEG/ERP, fMRI), and behavioural measurement systems (baby and children lab). 

The academic and research staff, as well as over 20 PhD students ensure a vibrant institutional research climate.
