Perspectives

  • The Brain Collection holds unique material of significant scientific value.
  • Using modern stereological methods, it is possible to determine size and cell number of selected brain regions. Such quantitative analyzes are necessary to bridge the gap between clinical studies (e.g. using non-invasive brain imaging) and experimental studies on animals and tissue cultures.
  • It is possible to study certain types of mutations in the tissue. This is relevant for both disease understanding and family diagnostics and councelling.
  • Danish as well as international contacts have shown an interest in the collection. Through collaboration we hope to maximise the scientific utilisation of the collection.  
  • In 2006, the Brain Collection became an associated member of the European network of brain banks BrainNet Europe. (www.brainnet-europe.org)
