The department of Neuroscience was founded in 2001, resulting from a merger between the Physiology and Anatomy department. In 2008, the BNT department joined forces. At present we consist of about 150 people.

We have teaching responsibilities within the whole bachelor's phase of the medical curriculum at the Erasmus MC, teaching both basic anatomy and physiology, as well as neuroscience. The department hosts its own Master of Neuroscience research program.

The department of Neuroscience is embedded in the ONWAR , Helmholtz , and MGC research school.

Exit the station through the main exit. Take the road that you are facing on exit (first 'Kruisplein', later 'Westersingel'). Continue until the Rochussenstraat. Turn right and continue until the first traffic lights. Turn left here into the Wytemaweg, enter the Erasmus MC Hospital. Once inside, follow signs 'EE gebouw'.

Erasmus MC is close to station 'Dijkzigt' at the Calandlijn. Take the subway from Centraal Station (Erasmuslijn) and change at station 'Beurs' (second stop) to the Calland lijn in the direction Schiedam/Spijkenisse (west). Depending on the direction from which you arrive, you can also take the Calandlijn directly at Rotterdam Alexander or Schiedam railway station.
