Staff from the Neurobiology Research Unit (NRU) often appear in the media to present the cutting-edge science being conducted at NRU.

In a recent DR3 program called "Kærestesorgens DNA" PhD student Dea S. Stenbæk and psychology student Nanna Hansen performed neuropsychological assessments of three people who have donated their heartbreaks to science to find out what happens to us, from the brain to the heart, when we have lovesickness. The program can be seen here (start at 10:34 min.)

Also recently, medical research year student Annette Johansen and project nurse Lone Freyr participated in "Videnskabsmagasinet" on DR3 in a program about drugs. This program is freely available here (start at 3:39 min.).
