The Clinical Neuroscience Laboratory (CNL) focuses on investigating the consequences of brain injury and disease as well as the effects of treatment and neurorehabilitation by combining advanced neuroimaging and brain stimulation techniques with wearable sensor technologies, neurocognitive assessments, and clinical measures. At CNL we also have a special interest in investigating the neural correlates of cognitive control function, sleep and fatigue. This is motivated by the transdiagnostic clinical importance of these phenomena for patient outcomes across different neurological and psychiatric conditions. 

CNL is part of a vibrant and multidisciplinary research environment consisting of local, regional, national, and international collaborators. We are working closely with several research groups at the Department of Psychology, as well as other departments at both NTNU and St. Olavs Hospital. CNL is part of Trondheim TBI Group, which is a larger multidisciplinary research group that focus on studying different aspects of traumatic brain injury. 

CNL is involved in a wide-range of activities in accordance with the Strategy of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), including research, education, innovation, as well as outreach and dissemination. Our research program is within the scope of the strategic research area 2014-2023 NTNU Health.
