Background and activities

I'm was a part of the Medical Student Research Programme, and am now a PhD-student.

I investigate the structural and functional relationship between memory function and brain volumes in premature children, adolescents and adults under the supervision of professor Jon Skranes and senior researcher Gro C. Løhaugen as part of the research group on perinatal brain damage and early brain development

We study memory function and brain structures using neuropsychological assessments and advanced MRI-techniques.
