A new study led by Dr Stuart Ritchie (School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences) has shown that an extra year of schooling can noticeably increase a person’s IQ. This study provides the strongest evidence yet that education raises intelligence test scores as the researchers found that an extra year of schooling leads to a small but noticeable rise in intelligence scores.

Prof. Mike Cousin (Centre for Integrative Physiology and Muir Maxwell Epilepsy Centre) has been awarded an Investigator Award in Science by the Wellcome Trust.
The image on the cover of the January 2017 Open Biology issue is credited to Ross Jones, PhD student in the Gillingwater lab at the University of Edinburgh (Centre for Integrative Physiology). The image is of a labelled neuromuscular junction from the forelimb of a mouse.
Hundreds of genes have been linked to depression in a study involving data from more than two million people that sheds light on why some people are more likely to develop the condition than others. Researchers led by Professor Andrew McIntosh at the Centre for Clinical Brain Science are now inviting people in Scotland to take part in a study known as The Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD) Study to understand more about the role of DNA in common mental health conditions.
Congratulations to Dr Mario Parra Rodriguez (former University of Edinburgh PhD student & associate member of Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology (CCACE)) who received the runner up award in the category “Outstanding early career contribution to dementia research” from Alzheimer’s Society. Well done Mario!
Researchers Dr. Chris Henstridge and Dr. Tara Spires-Jones (both Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems and Euan MacDonald Centre) have published findings suggesting that overactive scavenger cells in the brain may contribute to neurodegeneration.
Dr. Thomas Becker (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences) and colleagues investigating Parkinson’s have found that zebrafish are able to use specialised brain stem cells to replace lost or destroyed dopamine-producing nerve cells, a process which appears to involve activation of the immune system.
