Medical doctor (NTNU)

Medical Internship (St. Olavs Hospital and Røros Medical Centre). 

PhD in Neuroscience (Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience / Centre for Neural Computation, NTNU). PhD thesis: Spatial representation in the brain - hippocampal impact on entorhinal grid cells. 

Postdoctoral research: 

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson's disease - clinical, neurophysiological and cognitive neuroscience aspects. Special focus on action selection and decision making. (Dept. of Neuromedicine / St. Olav's Hospital, Trondheim and National Institutes of Health, USA)

Current research

Being a neuroscientist with a background as a medical doctor, I have a strong interest in translational neuroscience. My research focus is the neurophysiology of cognition, with a special focus on memory and action control / decision making. I have studied rodents and humans, including both healthy controls and patients with different types of brain disorders, using different methods. My aim is to bridge knowledge across studies in animals and humans, and to translate recent insights in the neurophysiology of cognitive functions into better understanding of human brain disorders. I am currently an associate professor at the Dept. of Neuromedicine and Movement Science and a researcher at the K. G. Jebsen Centre for Alzheimer's Disease (
