Diversity in brain research at UiO
UiO has many life sciences researchers who are working to discover how the brain develops throughout the lifespan and what are the underlying causes of brain disease.
The brain is our most important organ, and represents what it means to be human. All movements, emotions and thoughts are connected with the brain, and even small disruptions to functions and structure can result in disease.
Read more on the Faculty of Medicine’s website (in Norwegian). Numerous faculty research groups that conduct brain research are also listed there.
