You should also tell me if you want publications reported in FRIDA to be shown. Alternatively you may show selected publications. Tell me also if research groups published on of which you are registered as a participant should be shown (this will include our four research programs. I can add other research groups manually, if you tell me which ones. Finally you may show the content of RSS streams (from blogs, Twitter....) if you give me a title and the web address.

No big hurry, but please within the next month or two. English text is sufficient, i will translate to Norwegian as best I can.

Faglige interesser

I min forskning er jeg interessert i å identifisere mekansimene som ligger til grunn for at hjernens fantastiske evne til å prosessere sanseinformasjon og lagre erfaringer i nevrale nettverk. Vår forskningsgruppe jobber in vivo med elektrofysiologiske registreringer av store populasjoner av nerveceller. For å se sammenhengen mellom nervecellenes struktur og funksjon benytter vi genteknologi og to-foton laser-scanning mikroskopi.
