Welcome at NBB-Psy, the Netherlands Brain Bank for Psychiatry

NBB-Psy is a program of the Netherlands Brain Bank. Its aim is to establish a resource of brain tissue of 7 major psychiatric disorders:

  • Major depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder

As the personal, social and economic burden of psychiatric disorders is high, there is an urgent need for better treatment strategies, which requires the understanding of underlying etiology and pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders. The use of human brain tissue provides the most direct strategy to develop and test hypotheses about the molecular and cellular basis of psychiatric disorders. Read more
