Animal and cellular models are required for experiments in all areas of neuroscience, from helping to understand the mechanisms behind posings caused by nerve agents to understanding how the human brain loses connections due to neurodegenerations.

The whole world in our hands

Lucy Scullard (PhD Student in Neurogeneration)
How can we work out how different parts of the brain communicate? How can we work out what might happen when we take different drugs before humans try them? How can we work out what happens when systems in the brain get disrupted? These are just a handful of the questions that we try to address using cell based models plated on a dish we can hold in the palm of our hand.

Using nematodes as a model in neuroscience research - new routes to treating organophosphate poisoning?

Johanna Haszczyn (PhD Researcher)
Organophosphate poisoning is a major global problem and a public health priority. Unfortunately, treatment for this form of poisoning is inefficient, so often an acute attack can result in fatalities. I use the model organism C. elegans which is a nematode/worm to find new ways of combatting this form of poisoning. Join me to hear about the effects of these poisons on a global scale, to learn how powerful C. elegans is in research and how it is being used to find new treatments
