Bergen fMRI Group
The research is focused on brain activation studies related to a broad spectre of cognitive functions, including laterality, speech and language, working memory, attention and emotions. The group is also involved in research related to morphometry, perfusion/diffusion imaging, diffusion tensor imaging and neuroinformatics.
The fMRI Group collaborates with several clinical research groups particularly with regard to psychiatric disorders and different forms of language disorders (dyslexia, specific language impairment, aphasia).
Bergen fMRI Group is the recipient of an European Research Council Advanced Grant (ERCAdG) through professor Kenneth Hugdahl in 2010.
The Group has status as National Resource Centre for functional MR, together with the MR-centre at St. Olavs Hospital in Trondheim and is also member of the Nordic Center of Excellence on Cognitive Control funded by the Nordic Council (NOS).
