Dissecting behaviourally relevant feedback microcircuits in the brain

Interactions between distinct neural circuits in the brain help in sensory-guided perceptual decisions. We have recently reported that task/context-switching behaviour is dependent upon specific populations of neurons in the frontal cortex which encode and convey rule-related information (Banerjee et al. Read more

Cross-modal sensory integration for motor decision making.

Dr Koutsikou’s research group in collaboration with Dr Tobias von der Haar (School of Biosciences, University of Kent) would like to invite applications from outstanding and highly motivated candidates, worldwide, who wish to develop and advance neuroscience research. Read more

EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) scholarship - Can MIND networks derived from brain MRI shed fresh light on perinatal development?

Brain connectivity is central to neurodevelopment and later cognition and mental health (Morgan et al., BP:CNNI 2018). We recently proposed a new method to construct structural brain networks from MRI data, called Morphometric Inverse Divergence (MIND). Read more

Investigating the neuro-stromal-immune interactions in inflammageing and osteoarthritis.

Ageing is associated with a higher risk of developing multiple chronic conditions (multimorbidity) including osteoarthritis. Age-associated chronic low-grade inflammation (inflammageing) is a hallmark of osteoarthritis. Read more

Feeding microbes to protect the brain: does the gut microbiota mediate the risk-reducing effects of a healthy diet on Alzheimer’s disease?

Background. Ways of reducing the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias are critically needed, given the almost total lack of truly effective therapeutic options, even despite newer anti-amyloid drugs1. Read more

Investigation into the antiepileptic efficacy and mechanism of combination vitamin D and Ganoderma Lucidum polysaccharides

Epilepsy, caused by abnormal firing of neurons in the brain, affects 50 million people globally [1]. Almost one-third of epileptic patients do not respond well to antiepileptic drugs, and their side effects are associated with cognitive impairment, psychiatric problems, and recurrent epileptic adverse reactions [2, 3].

SLS SF4: Identifying pro-longevity drug targets by finding how the nervous system controls aging

Our ageing society is a critical issue. Remaining healthier for longer is a priority with the burden of age-related disease. We want to identify drug targets to develop pro-longevity pharmaceuticals that preserve cognitive function later in life. Read more

Metabolic modulation of microglial homeostasis and immune response

Microglia are a specialised immune cell found in the central nervous system. They are responsible for maintaining brain homeostasis and play an important role in the early onset and development of neuroinflammatory disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Read more

Chromatin remodelling complexes in human brain development

Chromatin regulators are a group of proteins that control the way the rest of the genome is opened up and “read” by the cellular machinery, with fundamental roles in development and disease. Read more

Investigating the links between β-amyloid, osteoporosis and frailty in Alzheimer’s disease

Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals1, significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia. Read more
