Research carried out by Dr Simon Cox and colleagues at the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognit
Joshua Dacre, postdoctoral researcher in the Centre for Integrative Physiology, was recently awarded joint first prize for his poster presentation in the graduate student category at the BNA2017 Festival of Neuroscience in Birmingham - congratulations Joshua!
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh's Institute for Music in Human and Social Development (Katie Overy and Emma Moore), Clinical Research Imaging Centre (Neil Roberts), and Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences (Mark Bastin), along with Leiden University (Rebecca S. Schaefer), have shown that using musical cues to learn a physical task significantly develops an important part of the brain.
Professor Seth Grant (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences), Professor Douglas Armstrong (Informatics) and colleagues in the Centre Clincial Brain Sciences and at the Lilly Research Centre (Surrey), have analysed the molecules produced at synapses in various parts of the brain and found that varying compositions correspond to brain functions. The team found that this map can now bridge the gap between genetic studies and findings from brain imaging, shedding light on why smokers might develop a habit.
Professor Tom Gillingwater (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh) and colleagues, along with researchers the University of Exeter, have made fresh insights into the links between nerve and muscle cells which could transform our understanding of the human nervous system and conditions relating to impaired movement.
Scientists led by Dr Nathalie Rochefort (Centre for Discover Brain Sciences) and Professor Tomáš Čižmár (Jena Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology) have developed a new minimally-invasive tool for imaging sub-cellular structures deep within the brain of living animals via a hair-thin optical fibre, which could help to further understand the functions and activities of these neuronal circuits when an animal is exploring a new environment or learning a new task.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) is currently featured in the Royal College of Physicians 'Women in medicine: a celebration' exhibition. This is an exhibition of specially commissioned photographic portraits honouring contemporary and historical women in medicine.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Professor of Applied Neuroimaging and Honorary Consultant Neuroradiologist, University of Edinburgh) has been honoured with the Presidential Award, at the European Stroke Conference, 16-18 May 2017, in Prague. This is fantastic international recognition of Professor Wardlaw's contribution to stroke research - congratulations!
A team of researchers led by Professor Seth Grant (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) have created the first synaptome map of the whole mouse brain which includes more than a billion synapses! This complex series of images is the first to illustrate how these vital connections are organised and could impact on our fundamental understanding of the brain.
