The goal of the Horizon 2020 “Lifebrain” consortium has been to harmonize, enrich, and fully exploit some of the largest longitudinal studies of age effects on brain, cognition, and mental health in Europe. 

Our focus has been on the effect, over time, of education, socioeconomic status, lifestyle factors such as sleep, physical activity, and diet on potentially enhancing and protecting brain structure and function. At the closing conference of the Lifebrain Horizon 2020 consortium, Lifebrain scientists will discuss their findings regarding the effect of these factors on cognitive and mental health throughout life, with invited keynote speakers setting the international context.

This conference will gather international speakers from different disciplines including psychology, neurology, neuroimaging, psychiatry, genetics, molecular biology, and medicine.

Although ubiquitous globally, psychotic disorders show strong social gradients by both individual attributes and geographical region, established via ground-breaking psychiatric epidemiology beginning in the U.S. and subsequently exported to Europe and beyond. Despite almost a century of research on this topic, persistent inequalities in the risk of psychotic disorders by both person and place remain, with potentially vital implications for etiology, public health and service provision.

Norsk narkotikapolitikk er i radikal endring. Bruk og besittelse av narkotika blir snart avkriminalisert. De såkalte «brukerorganisasjonene», som består av folk med egne erfaringer med skadelig rusbruk, spiller en stadig viktigere rolle i denne prosessen. PROMENTA-partnerne ved Institutt for sosiologi og samfunnsgeografi belyser dette, blant annet med basis i teori om såkalte «lay experts» og deres rolle i politikkutviklingen.

Happiness and well-being have emerged as important study subjects within and across many fields of research. A major driving force behind this is the association with physical and mental health and its pivotal role in socioeconomic issues and economic development. With the increased interest in the importance of well-being it is critically important to understand and reveal sources of individual differences.
