Research in Department of Neurology

Research is a natural part of our daily activities. The department is active in research in the great neurological diseases stroke, dementia and clinical neurophysiology.

​Clinical Neurophysiology​

​​The Department of Neurology has three important focus areas.

The clinical focus is to diagnose, treat and care for patients with diseases in the nerves and the brain.

The research focus ensures high standards and acquisition of new knowledge. New treatment methods emanates from research.

The education focus ensures a high standard of clinical care for present and future patients.

Research fields

The department’s research strategy is anchored in the widespread diseases stroke and dementia. The incidence of stroke and dementia is increasing as a result of the rising elderly population.

Our research in clinical neurophysiology is focused on the use of new technologies in diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases and the following rehabilitation.

We have a high standard of clinical care which is fundamental to solid research. Our research is clinical applicable. The gap between reflection and action is short. The day-to-day operation is continuously accustomed the research projects.

  • A professor
  • Andrea Rossetti, as international adjunct professor with Univervsity of Copenhagen
  • Neurology and clinical neurophysiology consultants neurology and clinical neurophysiology consultants
  • Residents

Research environment

The Clinical Research Unit office is manned by Anette Tabor and Helle Herling Kieldsen.

The department collaborates with University of Copenhagen, Technical University of Denmark, University of Aarhus and several university hospitals. Additionally we have international collaborators in several research projects.

The research staff is integrated in the daily clinical setting. We have office facilities and dedicated research areas and there is a close interaction between clinicians and researchers. We teach medical students and staff from other sectors and provide guidance and supervision of bachelor and master theses.​​​​​​​​​​
