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.
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.
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.
Scientists led by Dr Nathalie Rochefort (Centre for Discover Brain Sciences) and Professor Tomáš Čižmár (Jena Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology) have developed a new minimally-invasive tool for imaging sub-cellular structures deep within the brain of living animals via a hair-thin optical fibre, which could help to further understand the functions and activities of these neuronal circuits when an animal is exploring a new environment or learning a new task.
Professor Giles Hardingham (Centre for Integrative Physiology and Associate Director for the new UK Dementia Research Institute at University of Edinburgh) and colleagues have published a study that uncovers how neurones influence astocyte function.
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
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) is currently featured in the Royal College of Physicians 'Women in medicine: a celebration' exhibition. This is an exhibition of specially commissioned photographic portraits honouring contemporary and historical women in medicine.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Professor of Applied Neuroimaging and Honorary Consultant Neuroradiologist, University of Edinburgh) has been honoured with the Presidential Award, at the European Stroke Conference, 16-18 May 2017, in Prague. This is fantastic international recognition of Professor Wardlaw's contribution to stroke research - congratulations!
The Scottish Genomes Partnership has signed up its first recruits in a study which will sequence the entire genome of 1000 people, including 330 who have rare diseases, which include conditions such as muscular dystrophies, rare forms of intellectual disability and rare inherited neurological problems.
