Researchers are looking at common pathways that affect our brain cells in frontotemporal dementia and motor neurone disease to find new drug targets
This project will review the current evidence around the benefits and risks of sport and, through collaboration with stakeholders in research, clinicians, and sporting bodies, define future research priorities in this space.
Researchers will analyse data from large-scale studies and databases to understand the link between wellbeing and brain function decline in dementia.
Researchers will analyse data from large studies to explore whether risk factors for heart disease in early life will impact brain health.
How do toxic repeat proteins affect nerve cells in frontotemporal dementia
Researchers at University College London are investigating how a specific protein in the cell’s waste disposal system affects tau aggregation in human nerve cells.
Researchers at UCL are making a new sensor which can detect a marker of brain diseases in the blood,
Researchers from the University of Dundee are investigating how toxic protein clumps form in mice and their role in multiple neurodegenerative diseases
Studying chemicals passed between nerve cells could shed light on how nerve cell function is different in people with dementia
