What an excellent start to the new decade! We now have our first PhD student in Helsinki! Daniel joins us from Nijmegen where he spent a few years working in industry before returning to Scandinavia and science. In true style he was welcomed by Annette and Suse with a selection...
Last call for study participation (in German only)
Until the end of November we are looking for the last male volunteers (German only) to complete our study on the influence of fat and sugar on the brain. Help science and get in touch with us via 0341–9940 2629 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to welcoming you!
It’s our great pleasure to welcome our first Helsinki student to the team. Minka, who is a Master student of psychology, will be investigating whether olfactory stimulation influences automatic action tendencies in obesity. We are very proud to have a first collaboration between our 2 labs as the data was...
Suse @ Helsinki
Autumn may be settling in but it’s a busy time at the O’BRAIN Lab. Annette joined the Leipzig Lab for a couple of weeks before heading back to Helsinki, this time with Suse in tow. There, the two of them are busy sussing out the finer (practical) details of how...

The 3rd Nordic Neuroscience Meeting in Helsinki – Day 5
On our last day in the beautiful and surprising summerly Finnish capital we visited the public Helsinki Central Library Oodi to anticipate and discuss obstacles our lab will have to grapple with when Annette relocates to Finland.
The 3rd Nordic Neuroscience Meeting in Helsinki – Day 3
We kicked off our last day at NNM with a plenary lecture by Laura Colgin, who came all the way from Austin, Texas, to deliver a lucid and engaging talk about the different roles of fast and slow gamma waves in memory encoding and retrieval.
3rd Nordic Neuroscience Meeting in Helsinki – Day 2
The second day, Thursday June 13th, was filled with interesting talks, symposia and two poster sessions. The lecturers gave us fascinating insight into their research covering cellular bases of brain function and behavior.
