- Bristol Neuroscience 4-year PhD studentship in Alzheimer’s Disease research 25 September 2020 Dr. D.J. Stewart (BA Philosophy and Psychology, 1954) has made an extremely generous donation to Bristol Neuroscience (BN), enabling funding of a BN 4-year PhD studentship in Alzheimer’s Disease research. The project is also supported by the Faculty of Life Sciences. The studentship is also supported by the Faculty of Life Sciences.
- Do rats like to be tickled? 21 September 2020 Not all rats like to be tickled but by listening to their vocalisations it is possible to understand in real-time their individual emotional response, according to new research by the University of Bristol. The study, published today [21 September] in Current Biology, suggests that if this same relationship is observed for other situations, then it may be possible to use call patterns in rats to measure their emotional response and understand how best to improve their welfare.
- Slower growing chickens experience higher welfare, commercial scale study finds 18 September 2020 Slower growing broiler chickens are healthier and have more fun than conventional breeds of birds, new evidence from an independent commercial scale farm trial has shown. The study carried out by researchers from FAI Farms, the University of Bristol and The Norwegian University of Life Sciences, is published today [16 September], in Scientific Reports.
- Positive reaction to Somerset study into the best way to prevent domestic abuse 17 September 2020 A Somerset study into the most effective way to tackle domestic abuse has received a positive response from its first participants. Barnardo's in Somerset has been funded by the University of Bristol to deliver weekly groups to local men and improve safety for their partners, ex-partners and children.
- 9/11 can teach us how to support those bereaved during COVID-19, researchers find 16 September 2020 Researchers from a leading end-of-life charity have looked to 9/11 and other mass death events for approaches to support people bereaved through COVID-19.
- Genetic study of proteins is a breakthrough in drug development for complex diseases 9 September 2020 An innovative genetic study of blood protein levels, led by researchers in the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit (MRC-IEU) at the University of Bristol, has demonstrated how genetic data can be used to support drug target prioritisation by identifying the causal effects of proteins on diseases.
- Robotic muscles could turn back body clock by 2050 4 September 2020 Loss of strength and muscle wastage is currently an unavoidable part of getting older and has a significant impact on health and quality of life.
- Memory stability 3 September 2020 Have you ever wondered how memories can be so precise and long-lasting without getting muddled up? If you have you are not alone and it’s a question that neuroscientists have also wrestled with for many decades.
- Report reveals young people felt less anxious and more connected to school in lockdown 24 August 2020 Younger teenagers in the South West of England felt less anxious and more connected to school when they were away from it during the COVID-19 global pandemic public lockdown, a first-of-its-kind study has found.
- New study to consider how touchscreens affect pre-schoolers’ play 19 August 2020 A new research project will look at how touchscreens affect the way two and three year olds play and what impact this has on children’s development.
