Dr Christos Gkogkas and colleagues (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences, and Patrick Wild Centre) have published a study that may shed light on why a certain category of antidepressant drugs stop working in some people.
The author J. K. Rowling has donated £15.3m to the University of Edinburgh to help improve the lives of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and similar conditions. The investment will help create new facilities and support vital research at the University's Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic, as well as support research projects focussing on the invisible disabilities experienced by people living with MS, such as cognitive impairment and pain.

Joshua Dacre, postdoctoral researcher in the Centre for Integrative Physiology, was recently awarded joint first prize for his poster presentation in the graduate student category at the BNA2017 Festival of Neuroscience in Birmingham - congratulations Joshua!
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh's Institute for Music in Human and Social Development (Katie Overy and Emma Moore), Clinical Research Imaging Centre (Neil Roberts), and Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences (Mark Bastin), along with Leiden University (Rebecca S. Schaefer), have shown that using musical cues to learn a physical task significantly develops an important part of the brain.
New study led by Professor Mick Watson indicates that advanced technologies which read long strings of DNA can produce flawed data that could affect genetic studies. This project examined three previous studies reporting human genome sequences from long-read technologies. They found that the data contained thousands of errors even after corrective software was used, indicating that the data produced by these technologies should be interpreted with caution, as it may create problems for analysing genetic information from people and animals.
More than 400 people in their 80s and 90s were reunited at a Lothian Birth Cohort (LBC) event on 04 June 2017. This reunion celebrated 70 years, to the day, since the LBC1936 participants first sat the Moray House Test as part of the Scottish Mental Survey 1947. The participants of the Lothian Birth Cohorts met with Professor Ian Deary (Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology) and colleagues behind the project to mark their achievements on the understanding of the ageing brain.
Dr Tom Russ, Prof Ian Deary, Prof John Starr and colleagues (Alzheimer’s Scotland Dementia Research Centre, and Centre for Cognitive Ageing & Cognitive Epidemiology) have published a large longitudinal study which has found a link between quality of drinking water with dementia risk.
Professor Tom GIllingwater and Dr Ewout Groen (both Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences), in collaboration with Professor Kevin Talbot (Oxford), have published a major overview of the recent exciting developments in therapy development for SMA in Nature Reviews Neurology, titled: "Advances in therapy for spinal muscular atrophy: promises and challenges".
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.
