Bergen fMRI Group in the Centres of Excellence Centre for exellence

The Bergen fMRI Group is one of the core collaborators in one of the new Centres of Excellence being funded by the Research Council of Norway from January 2013. The Centre is co-ordinated by prof. Ole Andreassen at the University of Oslo, and profs. Kenneth Hugdahl, Vidar Steen and Stephanie LeHillard are the core researchers from the University of Bergen". The Centre has a focus on basic and clinical research related to severe mental disorders, primarily schizophrenia and bipolar disorders.

Guest lecture "The mismatch negativity (MMN) in clinical research and practice"

Professor Emeritus Risto Näätänen, University of Helsinki
Thursday 22/5/2012, 11.00 - 12.00
BB-bygget, Jonas Liesv 91, 9. etg. Rom 9A110

Prof. emeritus Risto Näätänen, University of Helsinki, Finland, is the researcher who discovered the Mismatch Negativity (MMN) evoked potential from the EEG pattern of the brain. The MMN response is a potential change in the EEG to sudden unexpected events and has been shown to be a biomarker of brain pathology in a range of clinical conditions, with relevance for psychology, psychiatry and neurology. Prof. Näätänen is among the most cited cognitive neuroscientist in the world, and his international recognition as an outstanding brain scientist is paramount.

All are welcome!

Kenneth Hugdahl
