Clinical Associate Professor

Primary fields of research

Main focus is the physiopathology of peripheral nerves and the central nervous system. I have a special interest in the integrative function of the brain and on the function of peripheral nerves. The studies cover both normal physiology and physiopathology.

Current research

We have active projects on:

  • Cortical reaction to visual stimuli
  • Interaction between temporal lobe epilepsy and autonomic function
  • Motor function and the effect of sleep and physical activity on motor task training
  • Peripheral nerve dysfunction in amytrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple myeloma, AL amyloidosis, Acute lymphatic leukemia
  • Autonomic nerve function in Myltiple myeloma, AL amyloidosis, Acute lymphatic leukemia, Alzheimer dementia
