Language and auditory brain: studies on central sound representation in auditory cortex (BerTa-LAB)
Welcome to the webpage of the project "Language and auditory brain: studies on central sound representation in auditory cortex (BerTa-LAB)"! This is a collaborative project between the University of Tartu (Institute of Psychology, Laboratory of Experimental Psychology) and the University of Bergen (the Bergen fMRI group) from January 2014 to February 2016.
The project received funding from the "Norwegian financial mechanism 2009‐2014" through the Norwegian-Estonian Research Cooperation Programme. The overall objective of the Norwegian-Estonian Research Cooperation Programme is to enhance research-based knowledge development in Estonia through research cooperation between Norway and Estonia.
Through the Norway Grants and EEA Grants, Norway contributes to reducing social and economic disparities and to strengthening bilateral relations with the beneficiary countries in Europe. Norway cooperates closely with the EU through the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). For the period 2009-14, Norway’s contribution is €1.7 billion. Grants are available for NGOs, research and academic institutions, and the public and private sectors in the 12 newest EU member states, Greece, Portugal and Spain. There is broad cooperation with Norwegian entities, and activities may be implemented until 2016. Key areas of support are environmental protection and climate change, research and scholarships, civil society, health and children, gender equality, justice and cultural heritage.
