Success of the 10 years Nansen Neuroscience Lectures

Today, the 12th Oct. 2020, two NO-Age international members Prof. Ragnhildur Þóra Káradóttir from the University of Cambridge (UK) and Háskoli Íslands (University of Iceland, Iceland), and Prof. Lene Juel Rasmussen from the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) delivered their lectures in the 10th Nansen Neuroscience Lecture digitally. While Prof. Ragnhildur Þóra Káradóttir gave a lecture on “Myelin plasticity – a mechanism of learning and brain repair”, Prof. Lene Rasmussen emphasized “Healthy Brain Aging: understand and intervene”. The lectures were very well accepted, highlighting a continued 10 years success of the Nansen Neuroscience Lecture Series, hosted by the two NO-Age founding members Profs. Linda Hildegard Bergersen and Jon Storm-Mathisen.
