Is the Swedish population at risk for becoming less intelligent? How do thyroid hormones affect the brain?
These are some of the questions that the researchers behind the SWIDDICH study want to answer.
On 21 February 21 associate professor and head physician Helena Filipsson Nyström will present her research together with emeritus professor Helge Malmgren.
You will learn more about the SWIDDICH project, which has recently been awarded a grant from Formas, but also about the COGTHY study that lays the foundation for the choice of brain imaging methods to be used in SWIDDICH. Both projects concern the effects of thyroid hormones on the brain. This MedTech West seminar focuses on structural and functional imaging, and is salted with a dose of hormones.
