Major neurocognitive disorders, previously called dementia, place an increasing burden on our society.

Its most common form, Alzheimer's disease affects close to 34 million people and this number is expected to rise to over 50 million by 2050. The cell death associated with the loss of cognitive functions is not only an ordeal for the affected person, but also a difficult situation for the caring family member. The goal of our research team is to improve the recognition of neurocognitive diseases, to develop prevention methods for dementia, to assess the affected Hungarian patient population and to investigate the underlying neurophysiological processes leading to neuronal death.

Our team uses many techniques of clinical research, including neurophysiological methods, psychological tests, intelligent online tools, laboratory and clinical tests, and brain imaging. We also pay special attention to activities with which we can improve the public's image of dementia and expand their knowledge. We believe that the opportunity to research the brain is an opportunity for all of us, for which we have to work every day, and at the same time, the knowledge gained in this way belongs to everyone.


Neurocognitive Working Group of the Methodology Department

The Neurocognitive Working Group was established in our institute under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Anita Kamondi and Dr. András Horváth. The aim of the working group is to create a national dementia register that assesses national dementia care. The register can be a significant step in understanding the epidemiological factors and risk factors of neurocognitive diseases in Hungary, and can also help to improve diagnostic options and care.

Our research team joined the WW-Fingers SARS-CoV-2 initiative to study the impact of the corona virus epidemic on the lifestyle, mental and physical health of the elderly population.

You can join the survey by filling in the form below below to contribute to the formulation of cross-continental action strategies. Thank you very much for your help!

April 2021

The National Institute of Clinical Neuroscience, the home of our laboratory, is being transformed. From 2021, we will continue our work as the National Institute of Mental health, Neurology and Neurosurgery, merging with the National Institute of Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine. The new institute will provide an opportunity to strengthen neuropsychiatric thinking, and its prominent role in the National Mental Health Programme could also promote dementia research and treatment. The new Director of our Institute is Dr. Loránd Erőss, to whom we wish success and strength in his new tasks. At the same time, we thank the former management of the National Institute of Clinical Neuroscience, in particular Dr. Csaba Óváry, for their support over the past years and wish them all the best for the future.

January 2021

Four of our lab's pregraduate researchers (Katalin Farkas, Anna Király, Dalida Borbála Berente and Anna Kegyes-Brassai) were represented at the Semmelweis University TDK Conference. Anna Kegyes-Brassai won 3rd place in Section B of the Neurosciences, while Dalida Berente won 2nd place in Section C of the Neurosciences and was nominated for the National TDK Conference. We congratulate our researchers and wish them good luck at the National Scientific Student Conference!

February 2021

Dr András Attila Horváth, head of our research group, has been awarded the Junior Prima Prize in the Hungarian Science category in recognition of his work to date.

december 2020

Our research group has the honour and the privilege to join the Euro-Fingers study. The aim of the European consortium is to improve the prevention of Alzheimer's disease and to develop joint European research programmes and clinical guidelines. The project is led by Miia Kivipelto, Professor at Karolinska University and Ryman Prize-winning brain researcher.

March 2020

Two students from our laboratory participated in this year's Semmelweis University Scientific Student Conference, both of them were awarded places. Anna Kegyes-Brassai was awarded first place in Section B of Neurosciences, Christopher Váraljai was awarded third place in Section III of Public Health.

At the opening of the conference, Dr Dalida Berente and Tom Werber were also honoured with awards. Dr. Berente Dalida was awarded the title of Outstanding Student Circle Member of Semmelweis University and both received a special prize for their first-authored article in a prestigious international journal.

Congratulations to our researchers!
