Congratulations to four outstanding Edinburgh Neursocience researchers on being elected to the Ro
Professor Neil Mabbott (The Rosin Institute) and colleagues have discovered why some people appear more susceptible to infection by prion proteins, which cause variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) in people and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in cows.
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.
Professor Tom GIllingwater and Dr Ewout Groen (both Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences), in collaboration with Professor Kevin Talbot (Oxford), have published a major overview of the recent exciting developments in therapy development for SMA in Nature Reviews Neurology, titled: "Advances in therapy for spinal muscular atrophy: promises and challenges".
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 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.
The image on the cover of the January 2017 Open Biology issue is credited to Ross Jones, PhD student in the Gillingwater lab at the University of Edinburgh (Centre for Integrative Physiology). The image is of a labelled neuromuscular junction from the forelimb of a mouse.
Researchers Dr. Chris Henstridge and Dr. Tara Spires-Jones (both Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems and Euan MacDonald Centre) have published findings suggesting that overactive scavenger cells in the brain may contribute to neurodegeneration.
