AU environment

The Environment at Aarhus University

Aarhus University’s Entrepreneurial Incubator

The Kitchen
At The Kitchen, they support students who want to work on entrepreneurial projects while studying. Some of their activities are in Danish, but if you are an AU-student and you have a business idea, they will be happy to help you move it forward. Link

Research groups

Crafa Lab
Her research investigates the effects of culture and social contexts on human development, brain processes, and genetics. Link
The focus of DANDRITE research are on molecular mechanisms that explain physiological manifestations of cellular communication networks in brain circuitries, and how these are affected in neurological and psychiatric disorders. Link
iPSYCH is studying five specific mental disorders; autism, ADHD, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression. All disorders are associated with major human and societal costs all over the world. The iPSYCH project will study these disorders from many different angles, ranging from genes and cells to population studies, from fetus to adult, from cause to symptoms of the disorder, and this knowledge will be combined in new ways across scientific fields.

Socio-Technical Design
Our research and teaching serves to bridge Engineering disciplines and Computer Science, while reaching into faculties such of Health and Arts including departments of Aesthetics, Culture and Anthropology. Linksocio-technical-design/
The group of Robotics and Control
They aim to developing the theories and technologies for designing and controlling advanced robot systems. Link
Center for Ear-EEG
The center serves as a framework for research projects with the aim of developing technologies and methods related to ear-EEG, and for investigation of applications of ear-EEG. Link
NeuroTechnology Lab
The NeuroTechnology Lab is a research laboratory hosting activities within a broad spectrum of technologies related to the human nervous system. Link
Embodied Computation Group
Their research investigates how our decision-making and conscious perception is shaped by visceral and embodied processes. Link
Interacting Minds Center
They provided a transdisciplinary platform to study human interaction. It involves researchers from the humanities, social sciences, cognitive sciences, biology and clinical research. Link
Music In The Brain
They aim to facilitate contacts between different scientific approaches to studying music and the brain, and to introduce this scientific field to a broader audience within the danish music community. Link
Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience Lab
Wants to understand how capillary blood flow is regulated and possibly uncover ways to control or optimize capillary blood flow during periods of insufficient oxygen availability. Link
NEMOlab - Neuroelectromagnetic Oscillations Laboratory
Their research group is dedicated to unraveling how neural oscillations communicate information across the cerebral cortex, as well as between the retina and cerebral cortex. Link
Laboratory of NeuroDynamics of Human Communication
They explore the dynamic processes of storage and access of linguistic representations in the brain. Link
The Neuroinformatics project will develop neuroinformatics tools to allow the exploration of key questions in the acute pathophysiology and subsequent recovery after acute stroke. Link
The neurophysics group uses biophysical modelling and magnetic resonance imaging to develop techniques to study the structure of the brain on a micrometer scale, i.e. its microstructure. Link
Pathological Gambling
They have published numerous scientific studies in order to establish both fundamental and specific links between gambling behaviour and brain mechanisms, as well as how these mechanisms differ across gamblers and non-gamblers. Link
Perception and Neuroarchitectural Mapping Group
Their main line of research within the group focuses on human perception, particularly conscious vision. Link
Translational Neuropsychiatry Unit
TNU carries out translational neuropsychiatric research, particularly focusing on human and animal experimental studies. Link
Plasticity and Disease
They use cutting-edge techniques as Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS), function Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to improve diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from brain diseases as Stroke and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Link
Pre-clinical Optical Group
They engage in interdisciplinary preclinical research with the overall goal to understand and quantify capillary dysfunction in various age-related disorders including ischemic stroke and reperfusion injuries, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetic neuropathy. Link
Gendering In Research
They are a network for anyone who is interested in learning more about sex/gender, sexuality, and feminist methodology and how one can approach these topic from a scientific perspective. Link
Danish Pain Research
The Danish Pain Research Center was founded with the primary aim to study chronic pain, in particular neuropathic pain, defined by IASP as: Pain caused by a lesion or disease affecting the somatosensory system (Jensen et al., Pain 2011). Link
The center joins brain researchers from numerous departments, institutes and faculties within Aarhus University and The Royal Academy of Music, in an effort to understand the human brain. Link
Danish Neuroscience Centre
The ambition of DNC is to increase knowledge of normal and pathological brain functions and translate this knowledge into clinical practice. This is done in close collaboration between researchers, clinicians and industry. Link
Cognitive Neuroscience Research Unit
An interdisciplinary research group with the overall goal to understand the fundamental relation between mind and brain. Link
Applied Imaging and Modelling group
Their focus is on image processing, statistical modelling, and prediction. Link
Functional hemodynamics group
Examines the role of the microcirculation in health and disease. Link
Their overall goal is to understand the fundamental neural mechanisms underlying human sensory and social pleasures, in order to increase our understanding and potential treatment of depression, obesity and eating disorders as well as with problems of parent-child attachment. Link
