Southern Africa Consortium for Research Excellence (SACORE)
The key goals of SACORE are to develop and sustain a critical mass of local research scientists to be independent investigators and leaders capable of attracting competitive research grants. To achieve this we plan to improve research management and support capacity, introduce undergraduates to research, and stimulate research outputs at all levels of the research career pathway. This will be ach… more

Modelling functional brain architecture.
The aim of the proposed work is to create models that enable useful and informed inferences about brain function based upon whole-brain electromagnetic and hemodynamic responses. These models are important because they define the nature of the inferences made. Neuroimaging with electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has an es… more

Mechanisms of social interaction.
While I am already supported by the Wellcome Trust, my position is currently as a component of the grant awarded to Richard Frackowiak. On the basis of past career and current work it is more appropriate for me to have independent funding. The work I plan will generate a substantial series of linked experiments in a number of cognitive domains. I anticipate that much of the day to day work will b… more

Bugs R Us
The "Bugs R Us" project has been devised to bring the excitement of new developments in microbiology to as wide an audience as possible through a travelling exhibition with a 5-year shelf-life. Human beings are a symbiotic association of mammalian and microbial cells with the latter (the indigenous microbiota) outnumbering the former by a factor of ten. The indigenous microbiota is hugely diver… more

InBodied.
Artist and performer Catherine Long will collaborate with neuroscientists Professor Patrick Haggard and DR Beatriz Calvo-Merino, and dance/choreographer Frank Bock on research centred around embodiment and the relationship between brain and body. I will study the tension between the subjective and objective experience of the body, and the mechanics of the body, based on my unique physicality. The… more

Pattern Completion
The project brings together a neuroscientist, an artist and a sound designer to create an installation exploring how networks of brain cells recall memories. Audio-visual sequences will be projected onto a suspended spiral of glass spheres. Initially the images and sounds will be hard to decipher, but as time passes they become increasingly coherent, following a theoretical process known as patte… more

The Point of Perception.
This project explores the area of ambiguity in perception, which is inherent in the artworks of Madeleine Boyd and fundamental to the research of neuroscientists Mark Lythgoe and Beau Lotto. The practice-based research nature of this project will provide a frame work for both artistic and scientific partners to develop their own work as well as producing work together. A series of scientifically… more

Properties of oligodendrocyte precursor cells.
This project will investigate the properties of oligodendrocyte precursor cells, examining in particular their response to neurotransmitters, their voltage-gated currents, their role in myelination, their developmental fate and their effects on nearby neurons.
Amount: £12,700
Neurogenesis in the mouse telencephalon.
The molecular mechanisms regulating neuronal development in the telencephalon are largely unknown. The aims of the project are twofold: (1) examine the role of the transcription factor NKX2.1 in immature postmitotic neurons of the telencephalon and (2) identify genes involved in the development of neuronal populations in the embryonic subcortical telencephalon.

No time for panic: British responses to influenza in peace and war, 1889-1919
The 1918 influenza pandemic represents the worst outbreak of infectious disease in Britain in modern times. Although the virus swept the world in three waves between March 1918 and April 1919, in Britain the majority of the estimated 228,000 fatalities occurred in the autumn of 1918. In London alone deaths at the peak of the epidemic were 55.5 per 1,000- the highest since the 1849 cholera epidemi… more

Assessing the challenges faced by health systems in providing paediatric Cotrimoxazole prophylaxis in resource limited countries.
HIV exposed infants are 16 times more likely to die in their second six months of life than unexposed infants, largely due to respiratory infections. Cotrimoxazole prophylaxis significantly reduces both mortality and morbidity. In Zimbabwe it is estimated that only 11% of exposed infants are prescribed cotrimoxazole and the extent to which it is correctly taken is unknown. The aim of the projec… more

Imaging Brains, Changing Minds.
'Imaging Brains, Changing Minds' is a radio drama that uses the fictional experiences of characters in the past, present and future to explore the far-reaching impact of brain imaging technologies on the way we construct, treat and legislate the interior lives of others. The drama will be broadcast to an international audience on Resonance 104.4fm and further disseminated via a podcast on the web… more

Ravelling, Unravelling.
A creative interpretation of topological and geometric investigations currently being undertaken in the biomedical fields, specifically those relating to packaging and unravelling of material within the human body and as used in the treatment of disease. I will research the twisting and foldings found in the organisation of the gut, in the treatment of medical conditions e.g. aneurysms by intra… more
