The Bergen fMRI group leader Prof. Kenneth Hugdahl and Prof. Karsten Specht gave an interview for the UiB magazine På Høyden regarding the discovery of the extrinsic mode network (EMN). Please follow the link to read the whole interview:, for English version see:


Researchers at the Bergen fMRI Group, in collaboration with Marcus E. Raichle and Anish Mitra at Washington University, St. Louis, USA have suggested the existence of a new generalized cortical network, the extrinsic mode network (EMN), as complimentary to the default mode network (DMN) previously discovered by Marcus Raichle and colleagues. The new network is described in a recent article in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience;, published on-line August 6, 1015
