Understanding how inflammation affects brain disease

We know that both peripheral and central inflammation influence neurological disease. This influence progresses and worsens diverse brain diseases, but the mechanisms involved are poorly understood. Read more

Inflammation, the immune system and neurological disease

Inflammation is now recognised as a key contributor to neuronal injury in both acute and chronic neurodegenerative disease. Many studies in this area have focussed on the post-injury inflammatory response and in particular on the role of specific cytokines in the central nervous system. Read more

Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory

This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’). Read more

Perceptual stability in Virtual Reality across the adult lifespan

When we move, stationary parts of the world around us move on the retina. Of course, usually we correctly interpret this retinal motion as due to our own movement and not movement of the surrounding environment. Read more

Defining the physiological role and regulation of biological methylations

The regulation of gene expression and function operates at multiple levels. Metabolic pathways in the cell generate metabolites that directly affect DNA, RNA and proteins, regulating the expression and function of many genes, often feeding back on the very enzymes that catalysed their synthesis. Read more

Uncovering the molecular mechanisms underlying spinal cord regeneration

About 1200 people a year are left paralysed in the UK due to a Spinal Cord Injury (or SCI). This is because injuries involving the central nervous system (CNS) have very poor capacities to regenerate, thus resulting in a permanent loss of function. Read more

Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g. Read more

Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene. Read more

Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.
