My PhD thesis was well defended on June 16. Opponents were Kenneth Hugdahl from the University of Bergen, and Lars Nyberg from the University of Umeå. The opponents were headed by Steen Hasselbalch, and my supervisors were Olaf B. Paulson, Terry L. Jernigan and William Baaré. Articles are still pending, waiting for the final analysis through SPM5, but a draft of each article will be posted here soon.

Now for new work in neuroeconomics, decision neuroscience, neuromarketing etc etc (whatever you may call it)


Textbook — finally out!

July 23, 2007

textbook.gifThe excellent new textbook entitled “Cognition, Brain and Consciousness”, edited by Bernard Baars and Nicole Gage, is finally out from Academic Press. It’s a highly readable book, rich in illustrations and examples. Judging from the reviews it has received so far, it’s going to be a popular book. I participated in writing the two chapters on brain imaging methods, one on the “surface intro level”, and another more in-depth description of methods. In a similar vein, other authors have contributed to both an easy introduction as well as more in-depth discussions, making the book accessible to both a broad audience as well as an update to those already in the field of cognitive neuroscience (I learnt a lot by reading other author’s chapters).
