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).
Our annual christmas public lecture will be delivered this year by Professor Peter Kind, Director, Patrick Wild Centre for Research into Autism, Fragile X Syndrome and Intellectual Disabilities, University of Edinburgh.
Professor Peter Kind (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences, Patrick Wild Centre, and Simon’s Initiative for the Developing Brain) delivered the 12th Edinburgh Neuroscience Public Christmas Lecture last night.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers across the UK and EU who are currently involved in, or interested in, Fragile X Syndrome research.
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.
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
Within a month of life commencing, we start forming the early structures that make up the human brain. Millions of cells (neurones and glia) are generated and all have to migrate to the correct location and make connections with other cells.
Applications are invited for four 3.5 year full-time fully funded PhD studentships spanning basic and translational brain sciences in the biological mechanisms underlying autism.
