Prof. Barbara Webb (Informatics) and colleagues have studied a colony of desert ants in Seville to see how the insects navigate when transporting different-sized pieces of food.
A new study led by Dr Mitsuhiko Ota (School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences) has found that infants exposed to higher numbers of baby talk words are quicker to grasp language. The research (published in Cognitive Science) assessed 9 month old children and found that those heard words such as 'bunny' or 'choo-choo' more frequently are faster at picking up new words between 9 and 21 months of age.
The afternoon will showcase the breadth of research that PIs, postdocs and students are undertaking right across the Centre, with presentations that will be accessible to all. The afternoon is open to all Edinburgh Neuroscience members. Registration is free, but required.
Professor Ian Deary and colleagues (Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology/ Psychology) have followed up more than 65,000 people who took part in The Scottish Mental Survey in 1947 at the age of 11, to examine the association between intelligence measured in childhood and leading causes of death in men and women over the life course.
The 2017 Brain Prize has been jointly awarded to three British neuroscientists, one of whom is an Edinburgh Alumnus. They were awarded the prize for their work elucidating the dopamine reward system.

Edinburgh Neuroscience's Neuroscience Day is an annual day of talks and poster presentations from neuroscientists of all backgrounds at The University of Edinburgh. It is an opportunity for the clinicians, basic researchers and students at Edinburgh to meet and exchange ideas in a fun and informal setting. Over 300 researchers join us for a day of talks and posters. Highlights include the poster competition for PhD students, and the Annual Distinguished Lecture.
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.
More than 400 people in their 80s and 90s were reunited at a Lothian Birth Cohort (LBC) event on 04 June 2017. This reunion celebrated 70 years, to the day, since the LBC1936 participants first sat the Moray House Test as part of the Scottish Mental Survey 1947. The participants of the Lothian Birth Cohorts met with Professor Ian Deary (Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology) and colleagues behind the project to mark their achievements on the understanding of the ageing brain.
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.
