PHD / MSCR PROJECT: How neurones engage astrocytes in network activity

It is now firmly established that in the mammalian brain neuronal networks cannot successfully perform their functions without concomitant metabolic and signalling support from the adjacent glial cells, called astrocytes. Read more

MScR - Early-life stress, susceptibility to mental health disorders and glia: central immune response in a rat model of pre-term birth

Depression and anxiety are the most prevalent mental health disorders affecting 1 in 4 people in the UK. Depression is the second most common cause of disability and together with other mental health disorders costs the UK economy an estimated £105 billion per year. Read more

MScR - Astrocyte mechanisms in depression

Depression is the most common mental health illness affecting about 20% of the population at least once in their lifetime. Depression has been proposed to be a result of a decreased level of brain monoamines such as serotonin. Read more

MScR: How does dopamine signalling shape behaviour?

“Shall I go and get something to eat?” At some point in the past few hours, this question may have crossed your mind. Our ability to move towards our goals, and the motivational decisions that regulate these movements, define almost every aspect of our lives. 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
