“Based on methods from physics, mathematics and informatics, as well as computational power from the Stallo supercomputer in Tromsø, we have developed detailed mathematical models revealing the connection between nerve cell activity and the electrical signal recorded by an electrode,” says Professor Gaute Einevoll at the Department of Mathematical Sciences and Technology (IMT) at UMB.
This is an example of how modern advanced technology is being used in the field of brain research. As the brain’s functioning becomes more clear, we will be able to find out in more detail about brain activation under hypnosis and its uses and advantages in research and clinical applications.
