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.
Throughout our lives our bodies are constantly changing. Some of these changes occur during specific times (such as childhood) while others occur thoughout life (e.g.
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 Timothy Aitman (Centre for Genomics & Experimental Medicine) has published a study in Cell Reports that identifies the epigenetic mechanisms involved in the generation of repair Schwann cells after nerve injury.
Dr Thomas Becker and colleagues in the Centre for Neuroregeneration have used the regenerative capacity of zebrafish to uncover key mechanisms in the regrowth of spinal cord neurones following damage.They found that collagen 12 is produced by fibroblasts and this changes the structure of the support matrix which surrounds the nerve fibres, enabling regrowth across the wound site.
