The adaptive brain - Life Science Lunch

How can the brain learn from experiences, and at the same time be stable enough to retain memories for decades? How does mental capacity change throughout life? At the seminar we will look more deeply into these questions.

 

ill. UiO : Livsvitenskap

The year of the brain is coming to an end. Researchers at UiO undertake several different approaches to find out more about the mechanisms underlying the activity of the brain both in the absence and presence of different diseases that affects the brain.

Livsvitenskap i lunsjen

Seminarserien gir deg innblikk i hva livsvitenskap er og hvilke problemstillinger UiO og samarbeidspartnere jobber med innen livsvitenskap. Du møter både etablerte toppforskere og unge talenter som gjennom mange ulike tilnærminger jobber for å løse og belyse samfunnsutfordringer innen helse og miljø. Serien vil ha annenhver foredrag på norsk og engelsk. Seminarene er et samarbeid mellom fakulteter og institutter, Studentparlamentet, Realfagsbiblioteket og UiO:Livsvitenskap
