Vi har en innstendig appell fra en av lytterne: IKKE GLEM å kaste rekeskallet med en gang! Ellers stinker det over hele huset dagen etter! Og hvorfor er det sånn? spør lytteren, hvorfor kan jeg ha kjøtt i kjøleskap i dagevis uten at det forringes, mens sjømat blir dårlig nesten med en gang? Det skal ekspertpanelet i Abels Tårn få svare på.

Fredagskollokvium: Friday Mingle
12. feb. 2016 11:15
We will have a new “mingle” meeting on Friday February 12 at 11.15 (as usual). The main attraction will be Mark Cheung who will explain what we have been doing during our week long workshop on the 3d floor in room 303 - the theme is “Flares on the Sun” and modeling of these. This meeting is part of a NASA Heliophysics Grand Challenge Project, and I think I can guarantee that Mark will show some nice videos. Otherwise there will be updates from Kristine and myself on the running of the institute. But fear not, there will also be plenty of time for informal chat and eating of cake. All are welcome to the lobby on the first floor.

From brain signals to consciousness? How can our conscious experiences arise from physical and chemical processes in the brain?
12. feb. 2016 15:15
Johan Storm (Institute of basic medical sciences, UiO) will talk about the work he does in the " brain signaling" group. His group is interested in signaling and information processing in the brain at multiple levels, from synapses, neurons and circuits, to control of behavior and mental processes, in particular consciousness and memory.
