Paediatric neurology

Denna sida på svenska

The research is interdisciplinary, ranging from molecular biology and genetics to neurophysiology and different kinds of brain imaging to studies in function, behaviour, clinical symptoms, treatment as well as social ability.

One of the main research areas is studies in motor and cognitive functions with the assistance of modern brain imaging techniques as magnet and PET cameras. The research groups have also room for a well equipped motor laboratory for the studies of different movement functions.

Many different specialists are thus engaged in this research, such as physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech therapists and psychologists as well as brain specialists, biologists and engineers.
