11 May, 2016 - Inflammation and Immunity in Schizophrenia and Depression: from mechanisms towards therapeutics

Time: 16:00:00 - 17:00:00

Organised by UCL Division of Psychiatry

Speaker: Dr Golam Khandaker- A possible role of immune system in the pathogenesis of major mental disorders such as psychosis was postulated over a century ago with recent evidence pointing to links with infection and inflammation. The first half of this talk will discuss evidence from recent clinical epidemiological and genetic studies implicating infection and elevated circulating inflammatory markers in the pathogenesis of depression and schizophrenia, including recent findings from the ALSPAC and other birth cohorts. The second half will focus on clinical implications of these findings and include novel meta-analytic evidence on effectiveness of immuno-therapies for schizophrenia and depression.

24 May, 2016 - Neuroscience Career Network: workshop on fellowship and grant interviews

Time: 13:00:00 - 16:00:00

Workshop chairs: Prof Elizabeth Fisher & Prof Giampietro Schiavo. Are you in the process of applying to or have just submitted your application for a Neuroscience fellowship or grant which involves an interview? As grants and fellowships are one of the most important requirements for a successful career in Neuroscience, we are organising a workshop for the final phase of that process: the interview. The workshop consists of 5 participants (postdocs or PIs) in the process of applying for grants or fellowships and who therefore will have written a proposal beforehand (short proposals have to be sent to the panel ten days before the workshop for preparation). Each participant will start with a short presentation to the panel members, consisting of the other participants and Prof Fisher and Prof Schiavo, followed by 10-15 minutes questioning. In the remaining 10-15 minutes the panel will give feedback. Video recordings will be provided for feedback on aspects of the presentation.

3 June, 2016 - Neural Plasticity Workshop: Insights from Deafness and Language

Time: -

During infancy, there are discrete periods during which the brain has an enhanced capacity for reorganisation in response to environmental inputs: the ‘sensitive’ periods of brain plasticity. Traditionally, it has been thought that reorganisation after a sensitive period is not possible. However, recent research has shown that plasticity is a property of both the developing and adult brain, and that functional recovery after the close of sensitive periods is possible. Integrating animal and human models, and insights from the study of deafness and language, in this workshop we will discuss mechanisms of brain plasticity throughout the lifespan, its impact on perception and cognition, and the current and future applications for functional adaptation. This is a free event but you need to register in advance via the link below
