Normative modelling of resting-state EEG across the lifespan for application in the early diagnosis of neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease

With a rapidly aging human population worldwide, neurodegenerative diseases represent a pressing medical and societal concern. Given the increase in life expectancy, dementia is expected to affect almost 152 million people by 2050 (Alzheimer’s Disease International, 2018). Read more

Therapeutic potential of neurosteroids in the treatment of anxiety and social avoidance

Neurosteroids are naturally occurring steroid compounds produced by the brain in response to stressful events, and they may serve a protective function by reducing the adverse consequences of stress, such as maladaptive increases in avoidance behaviour and anxiety that interfere with daily life.

MSc by Research: Nutrient-dependent regulation of microglia function and immune responses

Microglia are constantly sensing the brain environment for metabolic changes, damage and pathogenic invasion. Microglia are highly metabolically active, with activation in response to inflammatory stimulation increasing glycolytic demand. Read more

MSc by Research: ADP-ribosylation in dementia and motor neuron disease

ADP-ribosylation is a fundamental posttranslational modification where ADP-ribose is linked on to target proteins by ADP-ribose transferases and removed by the ADP-ribose hydrolases. Read more

MSc by Research: Understanding the functions of ERphagy via its targeted cargos

The selective degradation of the endoplasmic reticulum via autophagy, also known as ERphagy, is a fundamental cellular process that has been observed under different stresses and stimuli. Read more
