The SCI-lab attended the European Chemoreception Research Organization 2021 meeting in Cascais, Portugal. The scientific content included several high-quality symposia, as well as a keynote lecture by Nobel prize laureate Linda Buck. Our team included 12 members, and we presented ongoing work in 9 posters and one oral presentation. Before the ECRO meeting started, we […]
Jonas Olofsson visits episode 19 of the Nobel Prize Museums podcast to discuss how the sense of smell works. And why some infectious disease (such as COVID-19) can impact the olfactory system and how smell loss may affect us. Lyssna här (Swedish).
We welcome Nira Cedres to the lab as a postDoc! Nira is a researcher at Stockholm University Department of Psychology and she is affiliated at Karolinska Institute Division of Clinical Geriatrics. She has a PhD in psychology and the main focus of her research has long been on cognition and MRI neuroimaging.
We are looking for a Research Assistant to work on the computational aspects of memory and olfaction. You will build computational network models of the observed olfactory perceptual as well as memory phenomena. More information about the position and how to apply can be found here!
The grant will fund the SCI-LAB for the coming 6 years. The research project is called ”What can the sense of smell teach us about higher brain functions?” and involves cognitive training with smells and other sensory materials, as well as brain imaging measurements. The research will have a focus on aging. More information is […]
