Life Science Lunch: The adaptive brain

How can the brain learn from experiences, and at the same time be stable enough to retain memories for decades? How does mental capacity change throughout life? Can oral infection be a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease? At the seminar we will look more deeply into these questions.

Researchers at UiO undertake several different approaches to find out more about the mechanisms underlying the activity of the brain both in the absence and presence of different diseases that affects the brain.

About Life Science Lunch

This series of seminars provides insight into what life sciences are and what topics the University of Oslo and its collaborators are working on within life sciences. You will meet both established top researchers and young talents that through different approaches are working to gain new insight to solve societal challenges related to health and the environment. The seminars are a collaboration between faculties and departments, the Student Parliament, the Science Library and UiO:Life Science.
