Congratulations to Dr Veronique Miron (MRC Centre for Reproductive Health) and colleagues who have just published a study in Nature Neuroscience, which could be key to preventing disability progression in multiple sclerosis.
Research led by Dr Martha Koerner (School of Biological Sciences) has resulted in fresh insights into the rare genetic disorder known as MeCP2 duplication syndrome, which mainly affects boys and leads to severe intellectual disability, seizures and impaired motor function, that could pave the way for new treatments for the condition.
Prof Tara Spires-Jones has recently launched a new Neuroscience journal called Brain Communications. It will publish high-quality preclinical and clinical studies related to diseases of the nervous system or maintaining brain health and aims to be a force for good in the translational neuroscience field by facilitating a high standard of rigour and transparency and promoting career development of neuroscientists.
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.
Dr Matthew Lyst, Prof Adrian Bird and colleagues (School of Biological Sciences) have published a study that examines the structure and interactions of proteins whose genes are mutated in Rett Syndrome, a disease that results in intellectual disability in girls.
Professor Sir Ian Wilmut (The Roslin Institute), lead scientist in the project that created Dolly the Sheep, has announced, on World Parkinson's Disease Day, that he is backing a major new Parkinsons's disease research programme between Dundee and Edinburgh after being diagnosed with the condition.

The maintenance of neurotransmission by synaptic vesicle recycling is critical to brain function.
A new study led by Professor Anna Williams (MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine) and published in Science Translational Medicine has uncovered a potential approach to treat one of the most common causes of dementia and stroke in older people – small vessel disease (SVD).
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.
