Congratulations to Professor Seth Grant who has been selected as the recipient of the 2019 International Behavioural and Neural Genetics Society (IBANGS) Distinguished Investigator Award.
Professor Seth Grant (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) and colleagues have published findings suggesting the existence of a genetic programme that controls the way our brain changes throughout life.
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.
Congratulations to Dr David Howard, Professor Andrew McIntosh (both Centre for Clincial Brain Sciences) and colleagues, who have identified nearly 80 genes that may be involved in depression.
Dr Christos Gkogkas and colleagues in the Patrick Wild Centre have found that a commonly used diabetes drug, Metformin, could help people with a common inherited form of autism (fragile X syndrome).
The University of Edinburgh is joining with five other institutions to form the UK Dementia Research Intitute (UK DRI), along with charity partners Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK.
Congratulations to four outstanding Edinburgh Neursocience researchers on being elected to the Ro
Dr Pleasantine Mill (MRC Human Genetics Unit) has identified a gene, involved in brain development, which can lead to disability and death in infants.
Prof Andrew McIntosh (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences - Psychiatry), Prof David Porteous (Inst
Professor Ian Deary and Dr David Hill (both centre for Cognitive Ageing & Cognitive Epidemiology) and colleagues from University of Southampton and Harvard have identified over 500 genes linked to intelligence in the largest study of its kind.
