Brain health includes both your physical and mental health. The brain is the most important organ we have. Scientist Monica Aas talks about the brain and stress. Professor Christian Drevon is concerned with diet and physical activity. Professor Hanne F. Harbo points to the brain as our next major health challenge. Specialist and researcher Isabelle Ljøsne invites you to participate in a survey where you can influence the work that is done to give the population good brain health. Full program can be found below:

  • What is Brain Health - Really?

Previously, many people talked about different brain diseases separately. Today we think more about the brain as a whole and see relationships. The brain is our next big health challenge!

Hanne F. Harbo, Head of the Department of Neurology, Oslo University Hospital, Professor of Neurology at the University of Oslo.

  • Stress and brain health

Most of us experience periods of stress. Stress can affect how we feel and how we work in everyday life. But what does stress do to our brains?

Monica Aas, researcher at the Norwegian Center for Research on Mental Disorders (NORMENT), University of Oslo

  • Diet and physical activity are important for brain health

Many of the same factors that are important to other body organs are also important to the brain, with some important caveats.

Christian A. Drevon, professor of nutrition at the University of Oslo and adviser to the Vitas AS analysis laboratory in the Research Park.

  • Help create good brain health for yourself and others

What do you think about your brain health? The Brain Council and Lifebrain invite you to participate in a global brain health survey. You answer in Norwegian. What are you willing to do to create a healthy brain? The answers in the study will be very helpful for anyone working with brain health; brain researchers, health professionals, user organizations and politicians.

Isabelle B. Ljøsne, senior adviser at the Institute of Public Health and researcher at Lifebrain
