Speaker Professor Albert Gjedde is a Danish-Canadian neuroscientist. He is Emeritus Professor of Neurobiology and Pharmacology at the Faculty of Health Sciences and Department of Neuroscience at the University of Copenhagen. He is currently Professor of Translational Neurobiology at University of Southern Denmark; Adjunct Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery in the Department of Neurology, Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University, Canada; Adjunct Professor of Radiology and Radiological Science in the Division of Nuclear Medicine, Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, Johns Hopkins University, USA; and Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Iran.
Prof. Gjedde’s research focuses on the relations between neuroplasticity and neuro- transmission that can be revealed by mapping radioligand binding and the neuro- plastic changes of brain functions.The investigations explore the relation between energy metabolism and neurotransmission by recording the changes of energy metabolism and consciousness under pharmacological and other manipulations. His collaborations focus on experiments with volunteer subjects and patients that explore the lesions and degeneration of brain tissue in disorders such as epilepsy, ludomania, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, depression, and somatizing disorders, as well as disorders related to addiction.
