The neuroscientists at the Department of Biomedicine use a wide array of experimental techniques to investigate the structure and function of the nervous system at the level of genes, proteins, neurons, neural circuits, and behavior. Our approaches span from fundamental experimental work (basic science) to translational, with the common goal of revealing functional mechanisms of the normal and diseased nervous system. Current projects include investigating genetic, biochemical, molecular and cellular mechanisms for regulation of neurotransmitter synthesis, synaptic transmission, and plasticity related to learning and memory, sensory adaptation, and neuropsychiatric, neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders.

More LASER power with funding from NORBRAIN3

NORBRAIN3: New 2-photon microscope with simultaneous 2-photon uncaging

We multiply our 2-photon microscopy power with a new custom-built microscope for 3D scanning with simultaneous photo-stimulation and 2-photon uncaging. Available soon as a core facility for researchers in Norway.
