Info about event
the Main Hall (building 1412)
There will be guaranteed insight into brain research of the highest calibre when Nobel Laureate Edvard Moser from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim visits Aarhus University for the facilty's third Nobel Laureate Talk.
In his presentation ”Neural network computation in space-coding cells of the entorhinal cortex”, Edvard Moser will talk about his discovery of the so-called grid cells, which determines our sense of direction, and for which he received the Nobel Prize in 2014.
Together with Professor May-Britt Moser, also from NTNU, and Professor John O'Keefe from University College London, Edvard Moser discovered and mapped a positioning system, an “inner GPS” in the brain that enables us to orient ourselves in space. Their Nobel Prize winning research can help explain how memory is formed in the brain, and why memories of events often involve associations with spaces.
The event is open to anyone interested in brain research, but you will have to register.
