Introduktion

Vi har rejst til fjerne lande for at tale med ledende eksperter indenfor diverse og spændende neurovidenskabelige emner. Vi berører flere felter inden for neuromedicin; fra Parkinson's til hjernetumorer, fra binge eating til Alzheimers. Alt det her for at formidle det nyeste indenfor neuroforskning til medicinstudiet for alle semestre.
