Dementia: what makes us forget?
PhD students, Lund University
In a world where people are getting older and older, dementia, and in particular Alzheimer’s Disease, is becoming a growing problem. But what is really going on in our brain? What makes us lose our memories? And maybe even more importantly, is there any way to prevent it or is everything written in our genes?
The life and death of the Sun

Superior visual performance in nocturnal insects: Neural principles and bio-inspired technologies
Professor, Lund University
Nocturnal insects are able to distinguish colours, detect faint movements, learn visual landmarks and navigate using the stars. These impressive visual abilities are the result of exquisitely adapted eyes and visual systems. The principles we have learned from years of research have now inspired the development of artificial seeing systems that allow machines to see well at night
