About us

LCBC’s research goal is to understand brain and cognition. How does brain and cognition change throughout the entire lifespan, and how we can optimise them. We aim to explain, predict, and promote cognitive function from birth to old age.

A key investigation is the great variation in brain and cognition within and across individuals. We believe this is best studied using longitudinal studies. These are studies that follow people over many years. We also look at how brain and cognition is affected by risk factors and transitions into clinical conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Om oss

LCBC’s forskningsmål er å forstå hvordan hjerne og kognisjon forandrer seg gjennom livsløpet vårt og hvordan vi kan optimalisere den. Vårt mål er å forklare, predikere, og promotere kognitive funksjoner fra vi blir født og gjennom resten av vårt livssløp.

Det er en enorm variasjon over hvordan hjernen vår er og kognisjon mellom alle individer. Vi mener at den beste måten å undersøke denne variasjonen er gjennom longitudinelle studier, dette er studier hvor man følger mennesker over flere år. Vi ser også på hvordan hjernen og kognisjon påvirkes av risk faktorer og fasen over til kliniske tilstander, blant annet Alzheimer sykdom.

Aging and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are associated with progressive brain disorganization. Although structural asymmetry is an organizing feature of the cerebral cortex it is unknown whether continuous age- and
