About The Division of Neuro
Our core activities are research and education. Our research is at the leading edge both nationally and internationally and is very important in our close collaboration with the healthcare. We have many international and national collaborators and we always welcome new partners. We are active both in Solna and Huddinge.
We want our research to affect, increase and improve the clinical activity and underlie everything we do so that the patient quickly get the benefits from new results and methods.
Pioneer in Sweden
The Neurology Clinic at Karolinska University Hospital was established in 1887 as the second one in the world. The first Neurological Clinic was established in Paris 1884. For a long time they became the only Neurology Clinics in the world. Only in the 1950s there would be other neurological clinic established in Sweden.
Neurocentrum Solna opened 26 September 1963 under the leadership of Professor Eric Kugerlberg, with excellent research facilities both for clinical and experimental research. Once the land belonged to the crown farm Norrbacka. There was a house up on the hill with the same name that in the 1700s was transformed in a tavern where Carl Michael Bellman was a frequent guest.
