Research Institute Brainclinics was founded in 2001 as an independent research institute by Dr. Martijn Arns (biological psychologist).
Brainclinics specializes in advancing our understanding of the brain and the results of our research are a valuable aid in the treatment and prevention of symptoms such as mood-, concentration-, impulse control-, and sleep-problems, often seen in disorders such as depression, ADHD, and insomnia.
In addition, a key topic of our research revolves around ‘personalized medicine’, going beyond the traditional ‘diagnostic-thinking’ and focusing on individual differences that can help optimize and individualize treatment and prevent symptoms from occurring.
Brainclinics researchers have published over 100 scientific publications on these and related topics and continue to collaborate with researchers and universities around the world ranging from Australia, Germany, Belgium, the United States to Colombia.
Brainclinics pioneered the application of neurofeedback in the treatment of ADHD and insomnia, was one of the first to recognize the importance of sleep problems underlying many symptoms like loss of concentration and impulse control while also pioneering and refining magnetic brain stimulation (rTMS) in the treatment of depression and obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD).
Our research has resulted in several spin-offs, such as Brainquiry, neuroCademy and, more recently, an international network of neuroCare clinics, where our knowledge and expertise are applied to benefit people worldwide.
Brainclinics Insights is the publishing division of our institute. Our mission is to make our knowledge, expertise and especially ‘Insights’ gained through our research, widely available through books and interactive media.
All proceeds of the publishing division are fully invested back into the research that is conducted at Research Institute Brainclinics, which creates an unprecedented synergy between these divisions and generates new future insights.
