The Norwegian Node was established in 2007, and is one of the Governing Nodes, which contribute to the scientific operation of INCF.


The primary aims of the Norwegian Node are to introduce new opportunities for researchers in Norway for sharing and re-using experimental neuroscience data, using advanced tools for data analysis, and computational modelling of the brain. The Node has established tools and infrastructure for digital brain atlasing, sharing, re-use and integration of image data through the use of atlases, and advanced computational modeling.

The Norwegian Node offers

  • access to tools for data visualization and analysis, and computational modeling
  • services for collaborative research projects, as a vehicle to increase uptake and further user-driven development of neuroinformatics tools and infrastructures 
  • education and training in neuroinformatics in collaboration with the Norwegian Research School in Neuroscience
  • links to infrastructures for dementia disease research
