Developing an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease is the long-term goal of a new national research centre in Norway. Nobel laureates Edvard Moser and May-Britt Moser will lead the K. G. Jebsen Centre for Alzheimer’s Disease, aimed at determining how Alzheimer’s disease arises in the brain and its early stages of development.
Composer Bertil Palmar Johansen calls the rats Gjertrud and Hjørdis “rock-and-roll rats” because they’re so cool. They also star in a new art video about neurological research. The music to the video is built on the sound of brain cell signals from May-Britt Moser’s rats.
