Research confirms link between brain2019s white matter pathways and strength of communication between brain regions

Link confirmed between white matter pathways and strength of communication between brain regions

Integrative Neuroimaging Research

The degree to which functional connectivity between brain regions is affected by the properties of white matter pathways is a fundamental question in neuroscience.

Research results in drug discovery programme for pain treatment

Research leads to drug discovery programme for treating pain

Clinical Neurology Research

LifeArc, one of the UK’s leading medical research charities, has signed a deal to license an ion channel drug discovery programme to Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited.

New combined model to understand payoffs and costs of actions

New insights into how we learn payoffs and costs of actions

Clinical Neurology Research

How do we decide what to do in any given situation? We need to work out the payoffs and costs of actions – what we will gain and what it might cost us. But what is the exact nature of the mechanism in the brain which weighs up these payoffs and costs?

World2019s first gene therapy operation for common cause of sight loss carried out

World’s first gene therapy operation for common cause of sight loss carried out

Ophthalmology Research

Researchers in Oxford have carried out the world’s first gene therapy operation to tackle the root cause of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the UK’s most common cause of sight loss.

New research to investigate role of blood brain barrier in neurological conditions

New research to investigate role of blood-brain barrier in neurological conditions

Clinical Neurology Research

A new consortium of 27 partners coordinated by our department will tackle the challenge of discovery and characterisation of blood-brain barrier targets and transport mechanisms for brain delivery of therapeutics to treat neurodegenerative and metabolic diseases.

Natural killer cells used to treat chronic pain

Natural Killer cells used to treat chronic pain

Clinical Neurology Research

Damage to nerves during surgery or after an injury can lead to long-term pain. Scientists have found that specialised cells help to remove damaged nerve fibres, allowing new healthy nerves to re-grow, ameliorating nerve pain.

Mri scans reveal how brain protects memories

MRI scans reveal how brain protects memories

Integrative Neuroimaging Research

Two distinct parts of the human brain - the neocortex and the hippocampus (a part of the brain involved in higher-order brain functions) - have been shown to help protect our memories from interfering with one another.
