Crossing the boundaries of mind and medicine: Carl du Prel (1839-1899) and his network in the history of dynamic psychiatry
The proposed research aims to a) detail du Prel's philosophical-psychological system in the context of emerging mechanistic, monistic, and other theories of mind and body, especially pertaining to issues related to the mental causation of physical and mental health, b) reconstruct the genesis of knowledge claims of opponents of late nineteenth- to early twentieth century psychical research, who h… more

Nitric oxide signalling in the CNS.
Nitric oxide (NO) serves as a diffusible signalling molecule throughout the CNS. Despite progress, there remains a poor level of understanding about how this atypical messenger functions and this is the focus of the research proposal. To address the lack of knowledge of physiological or pathological NO signals (e.g. their amplitude, duration and spread) we have designed novel NO biosensors ca… more

Revisiting Jebel Moya: Social and biological evolution in south-central Sudan
Description of the project and its relevance Jebel Moya is a combined cemetery and settlement locality in the south-central Sudan which was excavated in the early 20th century by the founder of the Wellcome Trust, Sir Henry Wellcome. The excavation was overseen by different field directors, employing variable excavation, recording and surveying techniques, over the course of the four seasons from… more

Biomedical research into clinical innovation: translation, uptake and impact.
This proposal is to use a unique source for the history of modern medical science, the edited transcripts of the Wellcome Witnesses to Twentieth Century Medicine series, to analyse the process or processes by which science is transformed into accepted medical practice and to identify the major determinants of, and influences on, those processes, ranging from Government policies at one end of the scale to professional demarcation lines at the other.

Trying and Trying and Trying.
Gethan Dick will work with six UCL scientists to write six song poems, each one based on the experience and research of a single scientist. She will then work with six bands, each with their own fans and community of interest, to record the pieces. The songs will be made available for free on CD at a number of venues around London and wider afield, as well as via popular download sites. The final CD will feature text and images from each scientist as a response to the song poem about their work.

'The influence of network activity on the spatiotemporal receptive fields of mouse V1 neurons'.
The project will investigate the influence of neuronal population activity on receptive field properties of individual neurons in mouse visual cortex at different developmental ages in order to understand how this region of the brain becomes specialised for sensory processing. Particular emphasis will be made on characterising the synaptic mechanisms which shape receptive fields in response to different types of visual stimuli.

"Tropical Diseases Seminars 2009", to be held in Geneva during 2009
The main objective of this lecture series is to engage those involved in formulating and implementing health policies with historians of medicine working on policy-related issues, in the expectation that these interactions will be useful to all concerned. Indeed, the format of this meeting is intended to facilitate this process ? historians and policy managers will share a platform and present 30 minute talks; there will then be a 60 minute discussion about issues raised by both speakers.

Object Retrieval.
Object Retrieval is an exciting 8 month interdisciplinary project culminating in a highly innovative week-long performative event. In this event a massive team of researchers from across UCL's science, social science and arts faculties will explore the 'biography' of one object from UCL's remarkable but undervalued Pathology Collection. This real-time research will creatively demonstrate the syne… more

Spatiotemporal models of brain electrophysiology.
Modern two-dimensional (2D) multielectrode arrays allow for the simultaneous recording of extracellular activity from a large number of neurons. Such arrays yield important information for pairwise as well as higher order correlations among neurons and can also be used for the study of learning cell populations. In particular, 2D electrode arrays have been used to collect data from the visual cor… more
