Understanding and control of electric communication in bacteria colonies, using machine learning

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.

SELF-FUNDING MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Cellular mechanisms underlying acetylcholine roles in cerebellar dependent behaviours.

The cerebellum is the largest sensorimotor structure in the brain and is crucial for motor coordination and learning. Little is known about how acetylcholine modulates cerebellar circuitry, and until our current work nothing was known about the role of cerebellar acetylcholine receptors in behaviour. Read more

Identifying genomic causes of autism in adults and the impact on day-day life

Autism is a neurodevelopmental condition in which there are combinations of features such as impaired social-emotional reciprocity during interactions and impaired non-verbal communication. The cause of autism is complex, and is thought to be due to combinations of genetic and environmental factors. Most research has focussed on children.

Multitasking

When people do two or more things at the same time, i.e. multitasking, they usually become slower and make more errors. One reason for this might be that multitasking demands additional control processes which coordinate the concurrent performance of two tasks. Read more

Comparing the effects of face-to-face and ‘digital’ psychosocial stress

The working and social climate for the majority of people in UK has changed dramatically in recent months. Adapting to online working and socializing has added to the sources of potential stress in our lives. Read more

Understanding the aetiology of diabetic neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy is a common secondary complication of diabetes mellitus which affects around 50% of all patients with diabetes - impacting on health, wellbeing and quality of life. Read more

Investigating the link between amyloid-β oligomers, neuroinflammation and cognitive deficits in preclinical models for Alzheimer’s Disease

Currently four out of the five pharmacological treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors aimed at boosting the amount of acetylcholine in the brain, with the fifth being an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist. Read more

Inhibition and Excitation in the brain

An appropriate balance between excitatory and inhibitory neural processes in the brain underlies healthy psychological function. Two examples of conditions in which there is an imbalance are autism and ADHD. Read more
