Brain rhythms that serve as the ‘binder’ for memory and concept formation

Memories are like the internal movies of our lives, allowing us to replay past events or to imagine the future. Unlike movies however, scientists do not yet understand how the brain merges information from the senses to form new memories, nor how it could be stimulated to improve or disrupt memories. Read more

EASTBIO: The role of synapse protein lifetime in memory

  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
Understanding the mechanisms of memory formation and how these change across the lifespan remains a major scientific question, impacting language acquisition in children to cognitive decline in old age. Read more

Resident memory B cell responses in the lung; immunity against pulmonary pathogens

Immunological memory of antibody responses is critical for the ability of the host to cope with secondary infections and is the basis for the development of most current vaccines. Read more

How do hormones regulate memory?

Deficiencies of thyroid hormone are common throughout the globe. Adult-onset hypothyroidism is prevalent in around 8-10% of the population and is associated with reproductive disorders, anxiety, depression, and impairment of memory. Read more

A computational framework of associative learning and memory formation

  Research Group: School of Computing
When a musician plays piano, she needs to recall a sequence of notes. Neuroscientists seek to understand how brain activity gives rise to a timed sequence of events, as a result of associative learning and memory formation. Read more

Understanding the cellular processes that support pattern separation in the hippocampal dentate gyrus and how ageing affects our memory

We all know that ageing can affect our memory, particularly our ability to discriminate between similar events. For example, our ability to remember ‘where I put my car keys today’ as opposed to ‘where I put them yesterday’ becomes increasingly difficult as we get older. Read more

Consequences of predictive language processing for learning and memory

Language arrives at a rate of 150-300 words per minute. a rapid input stream that needs to be decoded at high speed. There is now an emerging consensus that the input is to some extent predictable, and that the brain generates predictions about likely upcoming input, which may provide a head start on processing.

Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories

The Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories (CMNH) exists to develop, focus and stimulate research concerned with the cultural significance of the past for our lived experience, social relationships, politics and identities in the present. Read more

BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Plant Traumatic Stress Syndrome: exploring the internal and external drivers of plant stress memory against pests and diseases.

To maximize their survival, plants store and integrate information from previous exposures to pests and diseases. A classic example is immune priming, which involves both physiological and epigenetic changes that enable a faster/stronger immune response against future attacks. Read more
