NORMENT – Norwegian Centre for Mental Disorders Research

The 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 four partners: The University of Oslo (host institution), the University of Bergen, Oslo University Hospital, and Haukeland University Hospital.

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.
