Centre of Excellence
NORMENT was established as a Norwegian Centre of Excellence (CoE) in 2013 with 10 year's funding from the Research Council of Norway.
We have ambitious scientific goals of understanding the underlying mechanisms of severe mental disorders and find answers to why some people develop perceptual disturbances, delusions, depressions, or manic phases.
The research at NORMENT has a clear clinical profile, involving investigations of participants with state-of-the-art clinical assessments and research technology, as well as translating findings to experimental studies for the identification of disease mechanisms and development of new treatment.
