Results of the FOCUS clinical trial led by Professor Martin Dennis and Professor Gillian Mead (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences), which tested the efficacy of fluoxetine to improve physical ability in stroke patients indicated that there was no improvement in patients given this drug compared with patients given a placebo drug.
Huge congratulations to Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) who was awa
Congratulations to Prof Rustam Al Shahi Salman, Dr Neshika Samarasekera (both Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) as well as other collaborators from Edinburgh, Manchester and Boston on being awarded a £0.44 million Stroke Association Priority Programme Award for 'Neuro-Inflammation after Cerebral Haemorrhage in Edinburgh’ (NICHE).
Congratulations to Professor Seth Grant who has been selected as the recipient of the 2019 International Behavioural and Neural Genetics Society (IBANGS) Distinguished Investigator Award.
Professor Seth Grant (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) and colleagues have published findings suggesting the existence of a genetic programme that controls the way our brain changes throughout life.
Professor Malcolm Macleod (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) and Jeffrey Mogil (McGill University, Montreal) propose a new approach to animal studies, in order to address the concern over the reliability and reproducibility of such studies.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) and colleagues published an article in Lancet Neurology titled 'Neuroimaging standards for research into small vessel disease and its contribution to ageing and neurodegeneration' in 2013. This paper was foundational in the recently published research from the University of Southern California.
Prof. Barbara Webb (Informatics) and colleagues have studied a colony of desert ants in Seville to see how the insects navigate when transporting different-sized pieces of food.
Our Art-Neuroscience monthly group, FUSION, contributed to the Creative Reactions exhibition at the Tent Gallery, Edinburgh College of Art, on Saturday as part of the Pint of Science events.
Dr Emily Osterweil and researchers at the Patrick Wild Centre for Research into Autism, Fragile X Syndrome and Intellectual Disability have used a genetic mouse model of Fragile X Syndrome, an inherited form of autism, to look at the changes in muscarinic M4 receptor pathway. They found that a paradoxical enhancement of M4 activity normalised activity and reduced seizures in these mice.
