On January 11, University of Nottingham neuroscientists across various departments, including many members of the School of Psychology, gathered for the annual Neuroscience@Nottingham Research and Poster Day.
The event started with a poster session where 40 posters were presented on research ranging from molecular and cellular to cognitive and clinical neuroscience. The guest speaker Paul Harrison (Translational Neurobiology Group, University of Oxford) discussed Recent advances in schizophrenia genetics and their implications.
Postgraduate poster prizes were awarded to Adam Seaton, for his poster on the role of the nucleus accumbens in behavioural performance based on hippocampus-dependent rapid place learning (Behavioural Neuroscience Group, School of Psychology, funded by BBSRC DTP), and to Andrew Hale, for his poster on MR assessment of cerebral response to exercise: effects of ageing and cardiorespiratory fitness (Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre, funded by MRC-Arthritis Research UK studentship).
The event was supported by Brain Bits, Platelet Solutions, and Proteintech.
