Previous Nansen Neuroscience Lectures:

The Nansen Neuroscience Lectures (NNL) honour Nansen’s ground-breaking contribution to neuroscience and since 10.10.10 is part of the Academy’s annual Nansen-celebration.

This year, Ragnhildur Þóra Káradóttir, University of Cambride and Háskóli Íslands (University of Iceland), and Lene Juel Rasmussen, University of Copenhagen, will speak on "Myelin plasticity – a mechanism of learning and brain repair" and on "Healthy Brain Aging: understand and intervene", respectively.

Keeping the brain in shape is a prerequisite for good life, and particularly at old age, when age-associated diseases encroach upon us. Here we get updated on the current advances.
