The Bergen fMRI Group is an interdisciplinary research group at the University of Bergen and Haukeland University Hospital with interests in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).
A particular focus for the fMRI Group is on the study of auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia, and dichotic listening studies of cognitive control. The research is also focused on brain activation studies related to a broad spectre of cognitive functions, including laterality, speech and language, working memory, attention, cognitive control and emotions, depression and aging.
To study the brain we are using a range of different tools: Morphometry, perfusion/diffusion imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, spectroscopy, EEG and neuroinformatics.
Bergen fMRI Group is the recipient of an European Research Council Advanced Grant through professor Kenneth Hugdahl in 2010 and 2016.
Projects in which Bergen University fMRI Group participates:
Schizophrenia is one of the psychiatric disorders with the highest social burden, and auditory hallucinations are one of its most common manifestations. Despite advances in neuroscience, the underlying pathological process is not well understood.
