Neural Networks Research Group

The Neural Networks Research Group consists of 3 Principle Investigators conducting basic and translational research within the areas of neurobiological research with an emphasis on structure and function of neurons, networks and systems. The group is functionally divided into two research laboratories:

  • Neuroinformatics and Image Analysis Laboratory , lead by professor Arvid Lundervold, with a focus on pattern recognition in structural and functional biomedical magnetic resonance images (MRI) and its application in clinical neurology and neurobiological research.
  • Retinal Microcircuits Laboratory, lead by professors Meg Veruki and Espen Hartveit, with a focus on the synaptic and cellular mechanisms of visual processing in neuronal microcircuits in the mammalian retina.

Lundervold Lab

We focus on pattern recognition in structural and functional biomedical magnetic resonance images (MRI) and its application in clinical neurology and neurobiological research.

The Retinal Microcircuits Laboratory

The Retinal Microcircuits Laboratory is interested in the cellular and molecular basis of synaptic transmission and synaptic integration in the central nervous system. Our main goal is to understand and characterize the synaptic and cellular mechanisms employed by identified neurons and specific...
