Neuroscience Day is Edinburgh Neuroscience's annual meeting and regularly attracts over 300 neuroscientists drawn from all over Edinburgh.
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 major fund has been established to support pioneering research into mental health and early death in people with epilepsy. The Juliet Bergqvist Memorial Fund has been made possible by a generous gift from a family affected by epilepsy and suicide. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh are using anonymised health data to link a diagnosis of epilepsy to diagnoses for mental health conditions and causes of death.
Congratulations to Gashirai Mbizvo (Clinical Research Fellow, Muir Maxwell Epilepsy Centre) who was awarded the 'Best Overall Presentation' prize at the Scottish Association of Neurological Sciences (SANS) Annual Meeting in November 2017.
Congratulations to Dr Gashirai Mbizvo (Muir Maxwell Epilepsy Centre) who won the prize for best P
We have many large neuroscience disease-related projects currently undertaking cutting edge research at The University of Edinburgh.
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.
Prof. Mike Cousin (Centre for Integrative Physiology and Muir Maxwell Epilepsy Centre) has been awarded an Investigator Award in Science by the Wellcome Trust.
Our research is strategically organised around a number of research centres, including our (often philanthropically-funded) interdisciplinary centres that bring together researchers, patients and social scientists:
Neuroscience research in Edinburgh takes place within a vibrant, integrated, and interdisciplinary research environment that encourages interaction between researchers working at all levels, from molecules, through synapses and networks, to cognit
