EASTBIO Memory for 'warning' patterns: a link to specific neural excitation

Many animals exhibit ‘warning signals’, patterns that include high contrast, spots or stripes and vivid colours. Although this makes them easier to see, the patterns are thought to have evolved to deter predators, who recognise the patterns as being exhibited by animals who are unpalatable or poisonous.

Exploring the vocal learning behaviour of bats with a view to understanding human speech

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
In speech acquisition, humans must employ vocal learning, making this a key trait for the understanding of the biology and evolution of speech and language. Read more

EASTBIO Improving prawn aquaculture for food security and disease biocontrol

Environmental, sustainability and political concerns necessitate a review and reconfiguration of our food production systems, particularly for global commodities like shrimp and prawns. Read more

EASTBIO Colouring the patterns of molecular and phenotypic evolution.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. A paradox lies at the heart of the rules of life that govern organismal form and function. Organisms are built and maintained by networks of genes that interact, moment-to-moment, with each other and with the internal and external environment. Read more

EASTBIO Do fish cooperate to inspect predators?

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
BACKGROUND. Cooperation is a fundamental process of life, ranging from bacterial interactions to human nations. Cooperation can take various forms, including foraging, reproduction and defence. Read more

TOOL CRAFTING IN NEW CALEDONIAN CROWS

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
SUMMARY. New Caledonian crows are renowned for their ability to manufacture complex foraging tools from plant materials. Read more

ParaHox homeobox genes in chordate evo-devo.

  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
This project will use a comparative approach to dissect regulatory mechanisms and functions of the chordate ParaHox genes (Gsx, Xlox/Pdx1 and Cdx), analysing regulation of these genes in the invertebrate chordates, amphioxus (Branchiostoma) and the sea squirt (Ciona intestinalis), and a vertebrate (the chicken Gallus gallus).
