Professor Tara Spires-Jones (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences) has co-led a study that has demonstrated the presence of phosphorylated α-synuclein at synapses, and disrupted synaptic function, in brain tissue from patients with a common form of dementia, Dementia with Lewy Bodies.
Congratulations to four outstanding Edinburgh Neursocience researchers on being elected to the Ro
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.
Three collaborative pilot project grants have been awarded to foster trans-Atlantic cooperation
Our 2016 Christmas Lecture by Professor Richard Morris (Professor of Neuroscience, Centre for Cognitive & Neural Systems, and 2016 Brain Prize Winner) on 'Memory: why it matters and how it works' is now available to view on our Edinburgh Neuroscience YouTube channel. Please feel free to share with family and friends!
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 maintenance of neurotransmission by synaptic vesicle recycling is critical to brain function.
Prof. Mike Cousin (Centre for Integrative Physiology and Muir Maxwell Epilepsy Centre) has been awarded an Investigator Award in Science by the Wellcome Trust.
A team of researchers led by Professor Seth Grant (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) have created the first synaptome map of the whole mouse brain which includes more than a billion synapses! This complex series of images is the first to illustrate how these vital connections are organised and could impact on our fundamental understanding of the brain.
Dr Chris Henstridge and Professor Tara Spires-Jones (both Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences) and colleagues have published a study which sheds light on how motor neurone disease (MND) affects the processes within the brain.
