Our 2016 Christmas Lecture by Professor Richard Morris (Professor of Neuroscience, Centre for Cognitive & Neural Systems, and 2016 Brain Prize Winner) on 'Memory: why it matters and how it works' is now available to view on our Edinburgh Neuroscience YouTube channel. Please feel free to share with family and friends!
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.

The maintenance of neurotransmission by synaptic vesicle recycling is critical to brain function.
Prof. Mike Cousin (Centre for Integrative Physiology and Muir Maxwell Epilepsy Centre) has been awarded an Investigator Award in Science by the Wellcome Trust.
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 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.
A team of researchers led by Professor Seth Grant (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) have created the first synaptome map of the whole mouse brain which includes more than a billion synapses! This complex series of images is the first to illustrate how these vital connections are organised and could impact on our fundamental understanding of the brain.
