Profile

Geir Øgrim (Norway) is a specialist in clinical neuropsychology. He works at Østfold Hospital Trust in a unit for neurodevelopmental disorders; 50% as a clinician and 50% as a researcher. His research has a focus on EEG based methods (quantitative EEG and ERP) as supplementary diagnostic procedures in ESSENCE disorders. He has published on the use of such methods as predictors of medication response in ADHD.
Geir worked for many years as head of the school psychology service in Halden, Norway. In the mid-nineties he started his work in child-and adolescence psychiatry. He is head of the professional board of patient organisation ADHD Norge. Since 2000 he has been connected to NK – National Resource Centre for ADHD, Tourette’s syndrome and Narcolepsy. (New name from 2015 is NevSom). At NK he has worked with the five-to-fifteen questionnaire (www.5-15.org) which is available in parent and teacher versions and has norms based on several thousand answers from Danish parents and teachers, and is widely used in the Nordic countries.
Geir was head of the project “Clinical pathways for children and adolescents with ADHD” (www.adhd-behandlingslinje.no), which has been used as a model in other parts of Norway.
Geir defended his dissertation in 2014 with Christopher Gillberg as first opponent. The title was: “Electrophysiology in ADHD; Diagnosis, predictions and treatment”. A joint project with GNC and three Norwegian sites on EEG and ERP based biomarkers for ADHD and high functioning autism is in preparation (autumn 2016).
