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

Simons Initiative for the Developing Brain (SIDB) PhD Studentships 2022

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

Effects of seabird nutrient inputs on the productivity of coral reef fish communities

How coral reefs can sustain their extreme biomass of large reef fishes has continued to puzzle scientists. By living fast and dying young, small, bottom-dwelling (‘cryptobenthic’) reef fishes have been suggested as an important part of coral reef productivity, fuelling the foodweb. Read more

Population genomics of the parasitic nematode Strongyloides

Parasitic nematodes are ubiquitous and have profound effects on their host populations. Parasitic nematodes’ genetic diversity is poorly understood, but this diversity underlies phenotypic diversity in how these nematodes interact with and exploit their hosts in the wild. 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

(BBSRC DTP) Mapping organic and inorganic chemistry with ageing in bone tissue

Bone plays vital roles in the body. Structurally, through supporting body movement and protection of internal organs, and chemically, acting as a reservoir of minerals, blood cell production and molecules for endocrine regulation. Read more

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

  Research Group: Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences
Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. Autism spectrum condition or ‘autism’ is associated with numerous genetic risk factors including the polygenic 16p11.2 microdeletion. Read more

NERC GW4+ DTP Studentship - Genomics, catastrophes and conservation management: the past, present and future of a cryptic endemic reptile

The Lesser night gecko Nactus coindemirensis (LNG) was once widespread throughout Mauritius and its offshore islands but underwent a catastrophic decline following human induced predator and competitor introductions from the 16th Century. Read more
