nordicICE launched

We launched our first software product, nordicICE (Image Control Evaluation). This was a direct result of the collaboration with Rikshospitalet and Atle Bjørnerud.


First product launched

We launched our first product – the SyncBox. This was a revolution as it took care of timing accuracy between stimulus presentation and paradigm delivery. Manual time management using a stop watch for fMRI was no longer needed.


Software development

NordicNeuroLab started collaboration with Rikshospitalet (today Oslo University Hospital) to develop software.


NordicNeuroLab founded

Researchers at the Bergen fMRI group had created tools to present stimuli to the research subject in the scanner. Other research sites around the world could be interested in similar tools – so why not start a business?


It all started with a flash

In 1994 Kenneth Hugdahl was the first fMRI research subject at the Bergen fMRI group. Using a strobe light and a mirror mounted on the head coil.
