Norway’s Nobel laureates take up the fight against Alzheimer's

Developing an effective treatment for Alzheimer's disease is the  long-term goal of a new national research centre in Norway. Nobel  laureates Edvard Moser and May-Britt Moser will lead the K. G.  Jebsen Centre for Alzheimer's Disease, aimed at determining how  Alzheimer's disease arises in the brain and its early stages of  development.

Interneuron Networks Control Distinct Elements Of The Brain's Positioning System

Navigating the busy city streets, do you ever reflect on how your brain is able to guide you in the right direction? Deep inside your brain, scientists have found a neural network continuously measuring and calculating your body’s movements and position in your surroundings, dynamically updating its calculations according to the passing landscape.


Flavio Donato Honored for Uncovering Neuron Circuit Development

Flavio Donato has been named the 2017 grand prize winner in the annual international competition for The Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology, for his essay "Assembling the brain from deep within." Dr. Donato's analysis of neuron development offers an entry point into better understanding the organization of the brain, which can help trace back the precise elements of a network that all come together to produce cognition.

How your Brain Experiences Time

Researchers at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience have discovered a network of brain cells that express our sense of time within experiences and memories.

“This network provides timestamps to events and keeps track of the order of events within an experience”, says Professor Edvard Moser. This area of the brain where time is experienced is located right next to the area that codes for space.
