Dr Emily Osterweil and researchers at the Patrick Wild Centre for Research into Autism, Fragile X Syndrome and Intellectual Disability have used a genetic mouse model of Fragile X Syndrome, an inherited form of autism, to look at the changes in muscarinic M4 receptor pathway. They found that a paradoxical enhancement of M4 activity normalised activity and reduced seizures in these mice.

Professors Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh), Karen Horsburgh (Centre for Neuroregeneration, University of Edinburgh) and Rhian Touyz (Institute of Cardiovascular & Medical Sciences, University of Glasgow) are guest editors on the recently released Clinical Science special edition on small vessels, dementia & chronic disease.
Congratulations to Prof Seth Grant (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) and his research group, who have been awarded a grant of £1.3m by the Wellcome Trust to map the human brain. The project is built upon their previous work creating another such map - called a synaptome - for the mouse brain. The researchers hope to map the trillions of connections between brain cells, potentially revealing new insights into the foundations of behaviour and brain disease.
