Our mission

The  Neuroinformatics and Image Analysis Laboratory of The Neural Networks Research Group at The Department of Biomedicine, UoB is working at the intersection of neuroscience and information science. The laboratory, headed by Prof. Arvid Lundervold, focuses on methods and technologies for quantitative analysis of (neuro)biological signals and (neuro)imaging recordings. This in order to achieve better understanding of brain and tissue structure and function in health and disease. The laboratory is active in interdisciplinary training of students and researchers, and has also a link to The Department of Radiology at Haukeland University Hospital. We have extensive interactions with researchers in applied mathematics, computer science and engineering both at The University of Bergen (MedViz, BBG) and abroad (Germany, Poland, France, Spain, Czech Republic, UK). Our Lab is a partner in European Networks (e.g. COST B11 B21 NeuroMath) and bilateral student and researcher exchange programs (Erasmus, Aurora, DAAD, NILS).
