Long-term memories protected by tiny "fishnets" in the brain

Neuroscientists from the University of Oslo are the first in the world to discover that structures on the outside of neurons play an important role in storing long-term memories. The structures look like small fishnets tightly wrapped around neurons, and long-term memories are lost if they are removed.

Modeling the brain as an electrochemical machine

Today, electroencephalography (EEG) is used to survey the brain of patients with as diverse illnesses as epilepsy, sleep disorders, eating disorders and coma. Researchers at the University of Oslo aim to improve EEG by modeling the human brain as an electrochemical machine.
