First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

It is with great sadness that we note the sudden passing of our colleague and friend Professor Terje Sagvolden, a highly accomplished neuroscientist, well known across the world for his contribution to our understanding of the neurobiology of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Here we pay tribute to this magnificent man and scientist in an intercontinental recognition of his contribution to science. Terje was a wonderful caring person, a kind considerate friend and a brilliant researcher. Terje was inspiring and creative, as well as a visionary. He pioneered collaborative research and forged links between basic and clinical researchers in different disciplines, across different countries.
