Professor Sharon Abrahams (Psychology and Euan MAcDoanld Centre for MND Research) has found thatfour out of five people with motor neuron disease are likely to experience changes in their brain function, as well as impaired movement.
Professor Tom GIllingwater (Centre for Integrative Physiology, and Euan MacDonald Centre for MND Research) has been awarded a grant from MND (Motor Neurone Disease) Scotland for the project titled: 'Identifying and targeting neuroprotective pathways in motor neurons'. Congratulations Tom!

Come along to meet the staff and researchers from the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic & Euan MacDonald Centre for Motor Neurone Disease Research, and find out about what they do.
Our research is strategically organised around a number of research centres, including our (often philanthropically-funded) interdisciplinary centres that bring together researchers, patients and social scientists:
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 progress through life our bodies show signs of ageing, and the brain can too. Sometimes the communication and structure of the brain and nervous system unexpectedly starts deteriorating.
Scotland rugby legend, George "Doddie" Weir, has pledged support to the Euan MacDonald Centre for Motor Neurone Diesease (MND) Research at the University of Edinburgh. The former British and Irish Lion - who earned 61 caps for Scotland and is now an award-winning after-dinner speaker and MC - recently announced his diagnosis with MND in order to raise awareness of the condition for Global MND Awareness Day.
Scottish PhDs in motor neurone disease & multiple sclerosis research
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.
