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

Applications are invited for 3.5 year full-time fully funded PhD studentships spanning basic and translational brain sciences in the biological mechanisms underlying autism. Read more

Investigating the link between amyloid-β oligomers, neuroinflammation and cognitive deficits in preclinical models for Alzheimer’s Disease

Currently four out of the five pharmacological treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors aimed at boosting the amount of acetylcholine in the brain, with the fifth being an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist. Read more

EASTBIO: Investigating the 16p11.2 genetic autism risk factor in brain development.

  Research Group: Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences

Understanding the aetiology of diabetic neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy is a common secondary complication of diabetes mellitus which affects around 50% of all patients with diabetes - impacting on health, wellbeing and quality of life. Read more

Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons. Read more
