Understanding Processes Implicated in Cognition and Age-related Cognitive Decline using Experimental Biology and Computational Analysis

  Research Group: Centre of Genomic and Experimental Medicine
INTRODUCTION. SORCS2 is one of five proteins that constitute the Vps10p-domain, or sortilin, receptor family. Members of this family play important roles in cellular processes linked to neuronal survival, differentiation and function. Read more

Physiological basis linking sleep continuity and age-related cognitive deficits: in vivo manipulation and monitoring of activity of layer 5 neurons in the cortex of mice

  Research Group: Surrey Sleep Research Centre (SSRC)
A good night’s sleep is essential to maintain proper mental health. In particular, consolidated periods of sleep (i.e. sleep continuity) seem to be critical for cognition as reported in humans (Della Monica et al., 2018) and rodents (Rolls et al., 2011). Read more

Behavioural & biological analysis of dissociable aspects of reward processing

  Research Group: Behavioural Neuroscience
It is essential for a healthy organism to respond appropriately to rewarding events (e.g. foods). Thus investigating the biological substrates of reward processing offers key insights into both normal behaviour and the deficits seen in psychiatric disorders. Read more

*Eastbio*: Decoding the genetics of cognitive functions

How did human cognitive abilities evolve? What are the genes involved in cognition? Are different cognitive functions, such as language and mathematical abilities, controlled by the same mechanisms? Answering these questions is very challenging, but unprecedented resources have allowed initial and highly promising discoveries in this field. Read more

Targeting protein acetylation to reduce microglia activation in neurodegenerative disorders

Recently, inhibitors of histone deacetylase enzymes (HDACs) have been identified as having potential therapeutic value for a range of neuronal disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and stroke [1, 2]. Read more
