The Morrison Lab: Embodied Brain Lab investigates emotional and social aspects of both touch and pain, and how these influence - and are influenced by - behavior.
Four LiU researchers will receive a total of SEK 18 million in project grants from the Swedish Research Council within humanities and social sciences. A further SEK 17 million has been awarded to a research environment in migration and integration.
Why do we get pleasant sensations when a person we like strokes our skin? India Morrison, winner of this year's Fernström Prize, wants to find out how touch and pain affect our behaviour.
Human touch is a powerful way of evoking emotions. What is the functional significance of the system for ultrafast nociceptors that we recently discovered? How does the nervous system distinguish social and self-touch? Our lab is looking for answers.
Research on the nervous system has made great strides in recent years. At Linköping University we are focusing among other things on the research on addictions, dementia and hearing disorders.
WCMM at LiU focuses on the medicine-technology interface, and build upon our existing strengths in research within medical technology, materials science and bioengineering.
Center for Social and Affective Neuroscience (CSAN) integrates knowledge and methodology from different areas of basic and clinical neuroscience.
What characterizes the Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences (BKV) is the wide breadth of research and education. BKV is one of the largest departments at LiU with affiliation mainly to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
