In the arly 1990s, a pioneering event happened in Norway: The first documented functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scan has been performed. Moreover, this happened just a few years after the development of this revolutionising method.

Since then, fMRI research became an important and internationally well-recognised research group at the faculty of Psychology, University of Bergen, and the Haukeland University Hospital, Bergen.

The Bergen fMRI Group has grown over the past 25 years and is still growing, constantly reaching out for new methods and discoveries in the field of cognitive neuroscience.

The Bergen fMRI Group is known for its solid research in the field of auditory processing, speech perception, music processing, brain lateralisation, schizophrenia and auditory verbal hallucinations, and clinical applications of fMRI in psychiatry and neurology.

The conference on May 5th and 6th will mark the 25th (+1) anniversary of the Bergen fMRI Group and, hence, fMRI research in Norway with a conference with distinguished national and international keynote lecturers. The conference will take place in the heart of the city centre of Bergen, at the Grand Selskaplokaler, Nedre Ole Bulls plass 1.
