The Center on Autobiographical Memory Research (CON AMORE) tries to integrate many different aspects of autobiographical memory research, including basic autobiographical memory research with adults, development of autobiographical memory from infancy to young adulthood and dysfunctional aspects of autobiographical memory, such as in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and amnesia. CON AMORE will meet a growing international need for developing and integrating theoretical and empirical research on autobiographical memory.


MINDLab is a cross-cutting neuroscience and cognition research framework at Aarhus University, funded by the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation as part of the Danish governments UNIK initiative, aiming to promote world-class research at Danish Universities.

Religion, Cognition & Culture

The Religion, Cognition and Culture (RCC) research unit explores the dynamic interrelationships between religion, cognition and culture from both top-down and bottom-up disciplinary approaches. Its scientific methodology is explicitly interdisciplinary and draws on and practices laboratory methods as well as fieldwork, textual, iconological and archaeological methods in close cooperation with its partners in psychology, the neurosciences and the humanities.

Technologies of the Mind

The Velux core research group Technologies of the Mind study distinct and identifiable human practices that allow for people to act, think and perceive differently, individually as well as jointly. We argue that such practices effectively become technologies of the mind as they, like other technologies, change both the world humans live in and the way they live in it.

NeuroCampus Aarhus

NeuroCampus Aarhus is a focus area of AU and receives strong support from the Lundbeck Foundation, The Danish National Research Foundation, Aarhus University Hospitals, the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, and numerous industrial partners.
