On October 17th, Nansen Neuroscience Network published the report “Næring for hjernen”. The report contains an overview of Norwegian research and development on dementia disorders, as well as an analysis of what it will take to translate the research into new diagnostics and treatments that will benefit patients.

The NNN report "Næring for hjernen" was presented at our National symposium on dementia on October 17th. The report contains an overview of dementia-related medical research and development in Norway. The report brought much media attention to NNN and the importance of further research and development.

The International Multiple Sclerosis Genetics Consortium (IMSGC) conducted this study, which is an international collaboration between researchers from across the world. Six Norwegian researchers were involved.

The focus was on neuroimaging and its clinical applications when Norwegian and international researchers met at the fMRI symposium in Bergen. 

Under the slogan "for PhD students, by PhD students", 92 PhD candidates from all over Norway gathered at the historic site of Stiklestad for the first National PhD Conference in Neuroscience. 

Researchers from Norway are involved in 3 large studies that will receive funding from the EU initiative for neurodegenerative disease research, the JPND. One of the studies is led by NNN member Tormod Fladby at Akershus University Hospital (Ahus). 

Norwegian researchers are involved in developing a new MR imaging technique, vessel architectural imaging (VAI), which offers insights into the treatment of patients with brain tumour. 

The working groups for HelseOmsorg21 ask for input on the future research and innovation strategy for the healthcare sector. The window for providing input opens today and closes on October 14th
