About us

The Norwegian Research School in Neuroscience (NRSN) was originally one of ten research schools funded by the Norwegian Research Council for an eight-year period between 2013 and 2021. NRSN was initiated and coordinated by members of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience (KISN) at NTNU together with a national committee of leading neuroscientists from each of the major Norwegian universities.

NRSNs funding period ended on 1st September 2021. From 2022, NRSN will continue as a dedicated project organised and run by KISN with the support and participation of the same partners. 

NRSN brings together the expertise of neuroscientists from all partner institutions: NTNU, University of Oslo, University of Bergen, University of Tromsø, and University of Stavanger. NRSN also has an extensive international network.

The main objective of the research school is to coordinate and complement existing educational activities with the partner and affiliated institutions, thereby providing additional training to PhD students covering genetic, molecular, and cellular neuroscience, systems neuroscience, clinical neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology, neuroimaging, neurophilosophy, developmental neuroscience, computational neuroscience, and neuroinformatics.
