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

The synthetic littermate project: How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain?

How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain? To address this question directly, we have been developing a novel robotic technology - the synthetic littermate (or ’surrogate’). Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Mapping organic and inorganic chemistry with ageing in bone tissue

Bone plays vital roles in the body. Structurally, through supporting body movement and protection of internal organs, and chemically, acting as a reservoir of minerals, blood cell production and molecules for endocrine regulation. Read more

  Research Group: Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences
Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. Autism spectrum condition or ‘autism’ is associated with numerous genetic risk factors including the polygenic 16p11.2 microdeletion. Read more

NERC GW4+ DTP Studentship - Genomics, catastrophes and conservation management: the past, present and future of a cryptic endemic reptile

The Lesser night gecko Nactus coindemirensis (LNG) was once widespread throughout Mauritius and its offshore islands but underwent a catastrophic decline following human induced predator and competitor introductions from the 16th Century. Read more

Deciphering the role of the intracellular domains of P2X7 in coupling to downstream signalling

P2X7 receptors are ion channels that are found on the surface of immune cells, where they respond to the binding of extracellular ATP, a damage signal released by dying cells in infection and injury. Read more
