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.
Epilepsy, one of the most common neurological conditions worldwide, is characterised by a tendency for seizures starting in the brain. There are more than half a million people in the UK with epilepsy but in more than half the cause is not known. This lecture will explore how rapid advances in the field of genetics has changed our understanding of the cause(s) of epilepsy over the last 10 years.
A Joint Symposium with the postgraduate students from the University of Tokyo. All welcome - no registration required.
Dr Christos Gkogkas and colleagues (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences, and Patrick Wild Centre) have published a study that may shed light on why a certain category of antidepressant drugs stop working in some people.
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.
We have a variety of postgraduate masters courses - research and taught - covering neuroscience-related areas, including distance learning courses. More information about these can be found at the individual programme websites.
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh (Dr Barry McColl, Laura McCulloch and colleagues - Roslin Institute) have been awarded a £1.3M grant from the Medical Research Council (MRC) to study the immunological mechanisms related to B cell function that are disrupted after stroke and could contribute to stroke-associated infection (SAI).
Professor Adrian Bird and colleagues (all School of Biological Sciences), in collaboration with Dr. Stuart Cobb and colleagues (formerly University of Glasgow, now Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences), have recently written a report for Nature on their research into Rett Syndrome.
Many types of neuromuscular disease, such as spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and Charcot-Marie-Toot
