A study led by Professor James Boardman (Director of the Jennifer Brown Research Laboratory at the University of Edinburgh) has shown that premature babies show better brain development when fed breast milk rather than formula.
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.

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.
Congratulations to Professor Charles ffrench-Constant (MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine) and Professor David Fitzpatrick (MRC Human Genetics Unit) have been elected as Fellows of the Academy of Medical Sciences.
Dr Pleasantine Mill (MRC Human Genetics Unit) has identified a gene, involved in brain development, which can lead to disability and death in infants.
Using data from an existing bank of brain scans held in the USA, researchers have found that chimpanzee brains may be more different from those of humans than was previously thought.
Joshua Dacre, postdoctoral researcher in the Centre for Integrative Physiology, was recently awarded joint first prize for his poster presentation in the graduate student category at the BNA2017 Festival of Neuroscience in Birmingham - congratulations Joshua!
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh's Institute for Music in Human and Social Development (Katie Overy and Emma Moore), Clinical Research Imaging Centre (Neil Roberts), and Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences (Mark Bastin), along with Leiden University (Rebecca S. Schaefer), have shown that using musical cues to learn a physical task significantly develops an important part of the brain.
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.
