Abstract/OtherAbstract:
There is a strong tradition of neuroscience in Norway, and Norwegian neurologists have been actively involved in developing partnerships between all those who recognize the importance of the brain and of brain diseases. It was therefore unsurprising that Norwegian neurologists took the initiative in establishing the Norwegian Brain Council (NBC). NBC was founded in 2007 and now comprises 27 organizations and institutions. It includes all those who work with brain research and brain diseases in Norway, as well as all relevant user organizations. Industries and businesses that are related to brain disease may be partners, but do not have full membership. The main mission of NBC is to provide information about the brain and brain diseases for both lay people and public authorities, including politicians, and to promote better treatment for patients with brain diseases and more research in neuroscience. The council has firm ties to the European Brain Council (EBC). NBC plans to follow the initiative taken by EBC in organizing a 'Month of the Brain' in 2013 and a 'Year of the Brain' in 2014. These initiatives could provide an impetus for greater focus on brain diseases, which is essential in order to meet the considerable challenges that are posed by brain diseases in the years to come.
