A10 dopamine neurons: the missing link in cell therapeutics for Parkinson's disease?

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most prevalent neurodegenerative disease and degeneration of the nigral dopamine neurons is a key pathological feature of the condition. Read more

Identifying cognitive and biochemical changes underlying lifestyle risk factors for dementia

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Dementia describes a group of age-associated conditions of which cognitive decline is a major feature. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is characterised by the onset of a gradual cognitive decline. Read more

SELF-FUNDING MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Probing the projections of different types of dopamine neurons

What makes one neuron different from another? How can we define different “types” of cells? Are cell types important?. In Parkinson’s disease some dopamine neurons seem to be more vulnerable to neurodegeneration. Read more

Biological rhythms and the dopamine system in cognitive dysfunction

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia are associated with metabolic syndrome, obesity and diabetes. Schizophrenia affects 1.1% of the population and although not the most common psychiatric condition it is arguably the most severe and debilitating. Read more

Supramolecular sensors for neurotransmitters

Neurological diseases are a leading cause of disability worldwide. Neurotransmitters (e.g. dopamine) are key molecules in neuronal communication, making their detection and quantification vital for medical diagnostics and therapeutics. Read more

Cell-type dependent pharmacological regulation of cellular mitophagy for therapeutic application in Parkinson’s disease

The cellular quality-control process of mitophagy, entailing selective degradation of defective mitochondria (following damage to their DNA) by the process of autophagy, has attracted considerable research interest. Read more

Identification of novel cortical interneuron regulators implicated in neuropsychiatric disorders

Despite representing only ~20% of the entire neuronal population in the neocortex, the GABAergic (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) inhibitory interneurons play a pivotal role in most cortical functions. Read more

Neurotransmitters, brain blood flow and functional brain imaging signals.r

The function of modulatory neurotransmitter systems such as serotonin, dopamine or acetylcholine are implicated in a wide range of brain diseases and are targeted by a wide range of therapeutic drugs. Read more
