Exploiting big data to understand access to greenspace in the UK

Greenspaces provide incredible valuable benefits to people. For example, there are over 62,000 urban greenspaces in Great Britain, estimated to provide just over £130 billion to those living nearby. Read more

Cold blood in warming winters: physiological impacts of climate change on UK reptiles

Environmental change is causing temperatures to rise across the globe - how this will affect the distribution and abundance of species is therefore an important current focus for ecologists worldwide. Read more

Quantifying drivers of human-elephant conflict in an arid savanna ecosystem

The continental-range of the African elephant has been dramatically reduced and fragmented due to the rapid expansion of human settlements and agriculture, resulting in escalating conflict over access to food and water resources. 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

The origins of individual differences in learning and behaviour: Computational models and in vivo experimentation

  Research Group: Behavioural Neuroscience
Learning can be separated into two components. The knowledge that has been laid down in the brain as a result of experience, and the translation of that knowledge into observable behaviour. Read more

Run, eat, sleep, repeat: Hypothalamic integration of homeostatic and circadian signals

Unraveling the contributions of the cortico-thalamic circuit to associative memory

How do we remember where we parked our car or where we left our keys? Such object in place associative memory is essential for everyday living and involves multiple processes operating across a network of interconnected brain regions including medial temporal lobe, prefrontal cortex (PFC) and thalamus.

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
