About Neuroscience, PhD - at University of Nottingham

School members form part of the Institute of Neuroscience. The Institute is able to facilitate high-quality, multidisciplinary, clinical and non-clinical neuroscience research. This group has access to a superb range of methodologies, ranging from molecular to whole animal and human studies to investigate:

    • Animal Models of Mental Disease: early environmental influences on brain neurochemistry and function in relation to mental disorders including Alzheimer's disease, ADHD, schizophrenia and depression, particularly the role of amine, amino acid and neuropeptide neurotransmission; neurogenesis during depression.

 

    • Drugs of Abuse: mechanisms of reward and aversive behaviour, with particular reference to cannabinoids. Neurotoxicity and metabolites of ecstasy (MDMA).

 

    • Pain Mechanisms: the roles of GABA, vanilloid and cannabinoid receptor systems in models of chronic pain.

 

    • Neurodegeneration and Neurotoxicity: molecular mechanisms underlying chronic human neurodegenerative disorders, particularly the role of the ubiquitin/ proteasome pathway; mechanisms of reactive metabolite generation in drug toxicity and validation of alternative methods; neurovascular damage mechanisms; embryotoxicity.

 

    • Hypothalamic Control of Puberty and Body Weight: the hypothalamic basis of energy metabolism; mechanisms involved in male reproductive maturation.

 

  • Molecular action of neurotoxins: role of astrocytes in maintaining neuronal and vascular function and their involvement in the vulnerability and resistance to natural and chemically-mediated neurodegeneration; effects of hypoglycaemia on brain function.
