Organisation profile

Integrative Neuroscience strives to conduct both basic and applied research within integrative neuroscience in accordance with the overall AAU strategy ‘Knowledge for the World’. This is accomplished within three sub-topics, namely

  • Tele-health solutions that integrate key outcome measures into the systems of the Danish primary and secondary health care sectors.
  • Technological solutions to improve assistive devices and (neuro)rehabilitation treatment, which to a large extent involve robotic systems. A substantial research focus is on robotic interfacing and robotic control.
  • Better understanding of peripheral and central mechanisms related to plasticity in the nociceptive system including better technologies to assess nociception at the peripheral, at spinal, and at cortical level in humans.

The group’s vision: We believe that better insight into neurophysiology and behavioural neuroscience as well as development of innovative technologies will lead to better diagnostics, treatment, rehabilitation, and improved quality of life.
