I had my basic training in psychology at Copenhagen University, graduating with a ph.d. ( in 1974 following experimental work in physiological psychology. My thesis dealt with neostriatal and frontal lobe function in rats. The next 16 months was spent at the Boston University Aphasia Research Center at Boston VA Hospital. I pursued clinical neuropsychology, first at Odense Hospital, Dept. of Neurophysiology, and from 1979 at the National Hospital (Rigshospitalet) in Copenhagen, Dept. of Neurology. At the same time I acted as a neuropsychological consultant to several neurology departments at provincial hospitals. From 1982 to 1985 I had a Medical Research Foundation grant to study amnesia after aneurysms on the anterior communicating artery. In 1988 I obtained a post at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Psychology, as an associate professor (adjunkt) in neuropsychology. Since 1992 I have been senior lecturer (lektor). My current main teaching responsibilities are in graduate neuropsychology, and I am the coordinator of the graduate study program "Neuropsychology and Applied Cognitive Psychology".

Copenhagen Neuropsychology Database  (Brain180)

A neuropsychological resource

Brain180 is a searchable computer database consisting of more than 180,000 references to the neuropsychological literature. The database is supported by the Reference Manager v.12 program. Regrettable, this excellent program is being outphased. However, the database can readily be converted to Endnote

The database includes the full citations for articles, books and book chapters. Most journal article citations include abstracts.

Search tips:

Author format: Adams,K.M.; Warrington (because Warrington is an uncommon name); or Baddeley,A* (because Alan may list one or two initials). Some references have full first names - in these cases synonyms are linked, so retrieval of the full name will get you all)

Journal format: Medline abbreviations, e.g. J.Clin.Exp.Neuropsychol. 

Keyword format: Medline keywords and keywords specifically designed for this database (>20.000). However, what are straightforward common terms for me is unpredictable for you. Study successful search results for additional keywords for your topic. Truncation can often be used with advantage. Keywords are case insensitive.

Generally, synonymous Medline keywords and more straightforward terms (e.g., Aphasia,Broca; Broca's aphasia; Broca's aphasics) and other synonyms (e.g., color; colour, and case study; Case Report) have been linked, so that searching for one will also retrieve the other. A list of synonymous terms is available below (more synonyms are added on an ongoing basis).

For the very serious user, a full list of keywords (and a list of Medline keywords with  extensions) are also available below.

List of Medline keywords WITH extensions (others will yield citations from 2000 on only)

Copenhagen Neuropsychology Database was developed using Research Information Systems' Reference Manager software. Contact RIS directly for further information. 

The database is available on a CD-ROM and requires Reference Manager 12.  Placed on the harddisk of your laptop or PC,  you always have the entire neuropsychological literature at your fingertips!
