Background and activities
2022: The Kermen lab has moved to the University of Copenhagen. We are progressively decreasing our activity at NTNU and remain affiliated to the Biology Department during this transition period.
Florence Kermen is the head of the Kermen group at the Biology Department (2018-2021), NTNU . There, the focus of her lab is to understand how stress affects the neural circuits controlling animal behavior. They combine anatomical and functional neurophysiology methods with behavioral assays in the vertebrate model organism zebrafish, to better understand how stress-induced changes in neural circuits modulate sensory perception and underlie maladaptive behaviors.
Kermen has been a member of the Outstanding Academic Fellows Programme.
