Textbooks and popular science books claim with certainty that women are better at finding words and remembering words, but is this really a fact?
Center for Digital Narrative and Bergen Centre for Ethics and Priority Setting in Health have been awarded the status as Centres of Excellence (SFF) from the Research Council of Norway.
A UiB-led study published in Cell Systems reveals that all cellular power plants - our mitochondria, plant chloroplasts, and more - have evolved according to a universal set of rules.

The SapienCE paper about a trapped artefact became the top ten most downloaded articles in the journal Geoarchaeology this year. The study demonstrates how the creative use of unconventional research methods turned an unfortunate archaeological sampling event into a scientific success story.
The online exhibition presents works-in-process of young scientists from the EvoCELL network. The researchers are studying animal evolution from a cellular perspective, by applying cutting-edge technologies to uncover a previously invisible world.
The University of Bergen has produced the special Sustainable Ocean Series, which has now been translated into all six official United Nations languages, spoken by almost three billion people daily.
New studies show that a specially designed mobile app increases motivation and learning. “I am interested in understanding more about the role of technology in increasing motivation and learning in students” says University of Bergen researcher Lucas M. Jeno.
UiB law scholar Joanna Siekiera spoke on ocean science diplomacy as part of the reunion of the 2020 Warsaw Science Diplomacy School.
The Norad supported project “Samaki”, which means fish in Swahili, unites Norwegian researchers with colleagues in Tanzania to study how small-scale fisheries are the key to combat malnutrition. This is part of a bigger picture in the fight for scarce resources and on the question whether small fish should be used as food for humans or become fish food?
Hallvard Moe, Pawel Burkhardt, Vadim Kimmelman, and Carlo Koos have received UiB's first ERC grants from Horizon Europe.
Linguistics professor Vadim Kimmelman receives high-level funding from the EU. Now he will be able to build a research team and explore different properties in five different sign languages.
From sunflowers to starfish, symmetry appears everywhere in biology. This isn’t just true for body plans – the molecular machines keeping our cells alive are also strikingly symmetric. But why? Does evolution have a built-in preference for symmetry?
UiB research shows that being born to term with a weight lower than 3,5 kilos is related to a higher risk of developing neurodevelopmental problems such as cerebral palsy and autism.
The results of a new clinical trial, published in the peer-reviewed journal Cell Metabolism, show that oral intake of nicotinamide riboside (NR) enhances NAD-metabolism in the brain of individuals with Parkinson’s disease, and shows promise as a potential therapy.
Cutting-edge technology makes it possible for scientists to retrieve DNA recovered decades ago. An international team of researchers, including scientists from SapienCE, were able to isolate ancient DNA from blocks of sediment embedded in plastic resin commonly used for micromorphological analyses.
Researchers at UiB have developed a calculator that can estimate how many life years you could gain by modifications in diet patterns.
Obesity increases the risk of developing more than a dozen types of cancer. Researchers from the Department of Medicine (UiB) have no shown that lipids associated with obesity makes the cancer cell more aggressive.
