Aarhus Brain Project

About the project

The Aarhus Brain Project is the first research project of its kind in Denmark. We examine the connection between the brain, body and mental health in Danish society. To do this, we need to recruit hundreds of people to participate in the project.

We are an interdisciplinary research group located at Aarhus University and at Cambridge Psychiatry led by Dr. Micah Allen.

Our research examines how decision-making and conscious perception are shaped by visceral and bodily processes.

About Aarhus Brain Project

The project examines the interplay between our brain, body and mental health. More specifically

we want to examine the connections between how well people make decisions, how well they

know themselves and what is happening inside their body (e.g., their heart rate or

breathing movements). These studies will give us important knowledge about how brain and body

interacts and affects our psychological well-being. In the future, we hope to be able to use this

knowledge to better diagnose and treat mental illness.
