About us

The Cognitive Health Research group (CoHR) is a multidisciplinary research team at the Department of Neurology, Division for Clinical Neuroscience. Our aims include contribution to development of novel and innovative methods for early detection, prevention, diagnostics and treatment of neurological diseases associated with cognitive health issues.

Another branch of our research is concerned with environmental and biological factors in gender development, and qualitative research into subjective experiences of adolescence gender dysphoria.

See the page "Projects" for a full overview of our ongoing projects.

 

Research methods

Our group has members from a number of disciplines, which reflects our broad research methods portfolio:

  • Electrophysiological (EEG) source reconstruction and network modelling.
  • Event-related potential (ERP) techniques.
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and radiochemistry.
  • Neuropsychological assessment.
  • In-depth qualitative interview techniques.
  • Physiotherapeutical interventions.

Through our collaborations, our projects also feature additional methods:

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), including functional MRI and MR spectroscopy.
  • Blood biomarkers.

 

National and international network

National and international collaboration is an important aspect of our group's research activities. Our network include partners from academic institutions, hospitals and health-related industry. For a full listing, see the page "Network" in the left-hand menu.

In 2019, CoHR became a partner of Digital Life Norway, and of EpilepsiNett, a national network for evidence-based epilepsy care.
