How do prenatal steroids elevate autism likelihood?

The causes of autism remain unknown. Some literature has showed a link between higher levels of steroid hormones such as testosterone in the womb and autism in children, particularly males. Read more

Can a bacteria brain play Ping-pong and Go?

Although initial discussions regarding bioelectricity and its role in the fundamental understanding of various cellular behaviours took place in the 1970s, the bioelectrical view of cells as a more general concept has remained limited to the fringes of biological research for five decades.

Synaptic circuitry of the spinal dorsal horn: unmasking the cellular basis of chronic pain

Project Outline. Chronic (persistent) pain affects approximately 20% of the global population, however, one in three of these patients do not respond to any form of treatments that are currently available. Read more

Spinal cord neuronal pathways for pain and itch

The dorsal horn of the spinal cord plays an important role in processing sensory information that is perceived as pain and itch. However, despite its importance we know relatively little about the organisation of neural circuits in this region. Read more

Physiological basis linking sleep continuity and age-related cognitive deficits: in vivo manipulation and monitoring of activity of layer 5 neurons in the cortex of mice

  Research Group: Surrey Sleep Research Centre (SSRC)
A good night’s sleep is essential to maintain proper mental health. In particular, consolidated periods of sleep (i.e. sleep continuity) seem to be critical for cognition as reported in humans (Della Monica et al., 2018) and rodents (Rolls et al., 2011). Read more

Comparing navigation strategies in mantis shrimp and bull ants

Mantis shrimp (Stomatopoda) are marine crustaceans with extraordinary eyes, boasting up to 12 channels of colour sensitivity, 6 channels of polarization, and incredible ranges of eye movement. Read more

Understanding and optimising motor cortex plasticity

Motor learning is a key skill required at all stages of life but is crucially important for recovery and development. A mechanistic understanding of the biological processes that underpin skill acquisition in healthy and pathological states is an important scientific and clinical goal. Read more

Testing Cognition in Three Rodent Models of Intellectual Disability

Recent advances have allowed the creation of rat models of monogenic (single gene) causes of intellectual disability. However, little is known about how these animals perform in complex behavioural tasks. Read more
