Improving Hydration Status, Cognition and Learning in Primary School Aged Children through Milk (and Milk Permeate) Consumption. (REF: RDF22/HLS/SER/RUMBOLD)

During Covid-19 and the UK lockdown, children have been impacted severely (and unequally), meaning that many children were away from school for 6 months during the first lockdown (Holt & Murray, 2021), potentially influencing learning and educational development. Read more

Detecting subtle but clinically significant cognitive change in an ageing population

A major challenge facing dementia research is identifying the earliest indicators of clinically-significant cognitive decline. This research project will be linked to the newly established Memory Assessment & Cognitive Ageing Research Unit (MACARU), led by the primary supervisor. Read more

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

Identifying cognitive and biochemical changes underlying lifestyle risk factors for dementia

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Dementia describes a group of age-associated conditions of which cognitive decline is a major feature. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is characterised by the onset of a gradual cognitive decline. 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

How do prenatal steroids elevate autism likelihood?

The causes of autism remain unknown. Some literature has showed a link between higher levels of steroid hormones such as testosterone in the womb and autism in children, particularly males. Read more

Sleep engineering to boost creative problem solving

  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
We spend 1/3 rd of our life asleep, and the brain is very busy during this time. Memories are spontaneously reinstated during sleep, and this reinstatement has been linked to consolidation, or strengthening of the memories involved. Read more
