NORMENT K.G. Jebsen Centre for Psychosis Research

 

The Norwegian Centre for Mental Disorders Research (NORMENT) is a Centre of Excellence (CoE) established in 2013 and funded by the Research Council of Norway.

The centre is based on a collaboration between three partners: The University of Oslo (host institution), the University of Bergen and Oslo University Hospital.

NORMENT is integrated with the K. G. Jebsen Centre for Psychosis Research, funded by the Stiftelsen Kristian Gerhard Jebsen. This integration of two centres provides a unique opportunity to perform comprehensive and long-term research, reaching across the country.

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.
