Nansen Minneforelesning 2016
10. oktober markeres Fridtjof Nansens fødselsdag på Vitenskapsakademiet. Jan Egeland holder Nansen Minneforelesning over temaet Flyktninger og folkevandring hundre år etter Nansen. Tidligere samme dag avholdes Nansen Neuroscience lectures. Anthony N van den Pol holder foredrag om om hvordan man kan utnytte virus i hjernen til å bekjempe hjernekreft og Rodolfo R Llinás om at kontekstavhengig impulssvingning i hjernens nerveforbindelser ligger til grunn for tenking.
Generalsekretær i Flyktningehjelpen Jan Egeland:

Abstrakter og praktisk informasjon her
Dr van den Pol graduated from Yale University and did postdoctoral work at Oxford, Semmelweis, and Stanford Universities in the areas of neuropharmacology, neuroanatomy, and neurophysiology. He has two overlapping research interests. One focus is on regulatory mechanisms of the hypothalamus. The other is on viruses as pathogens and experimental and therapeutic tools in the brain.
Dr Llinás graduated and received his MD at the Pontifical Xavierian University in Bogotá, Colombia, and did his PhD with Sir John C Eccles at the Australian National University. He has made a wide range of contributions ranging from basic properties of nerve cells to brain network function, such as cerebellar control of movements and thalamo-cortical interaction in cognition.
