Dr Christos Gkogkas and colleagues (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences, and Patrick Wild Centre) have published a study that may shed light on why a certain category of antidepressant drugs stop working in some people.
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.
Hundreds of genes have been linked to depression in a study involving data from more than two million people that sheds light on why some people are more likely to develop the condition than others. Researchers led by Professor Andrew McIntosh at the Centre for Clinical Brain Science are now inviting people in Scotland to take part in a study known as The Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD) Study to understand more about the role of DNA in common mental health conditions.
Edinburgh Neuroscience has formal partnerships with several international institutes:
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
As we mature into adults, the brain has established and refined billions of connections.
Professor Andrew McIntosh (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences), Professor Ian Deary (Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Epidemiology), Dr Michelle Luciano (Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Epidemiology) and colleagues (University of Edinburgh and King's College London) have published results from a study suggesting that people affected by depression may have genes associated with anxiety, worry and low mood. The DNA of over 300,000 people was analysed and many genes were found to link to neuroticism – characterised by feelings of anxiety, worry and guilt. The genes are also linked to depression. The findings help shed light on the causes of depression – which affects one in five people – and could provide information to help better diagnosis and treatment for individuals, scientists say.
