Neurocomic

Following my list of resources for fresh neuroscientists, I figured I'd share something for those interested in exploring neuroscience but not quite ready to pick up a textbook, namely neurocomic. Neurocomic is a Wellcome Trust supported project that aims to explain neuroscience ideas to a lay audience using comics. The brainchild of neuroscientists Hana Ros (UCL) … Continue reading Neurocomic

Resources for new neuroscientists

Analysis can be tricky at times, especially in neuroscience. Our business is one of maths and stats, and it can all be a bit complex, especially for those new to the field. Below is a short list of resources available to neuroscientists that may be useful when trying to make sense of the data: 1. … Continue reading Resources for new neuroscientists

Breathlessness and opioids

We've recently published a paper on how opioids can modulate breathlessness. (The whole manuscript is open access here). Low-dose opioids can be used for treating chronic breathlessness, but we don't know exactly how they work. Opioid receptors exist across the brain. These are part of the internal opioid system (endogenous opioid system) for natural pain relief. When … Continue reading Breathlessness and opioids

Predicting trouble: EEG, NO and stroke

We've recently published a paper titled "Electroencephalographic Response to Sodium Nitrite May Predict Delayed Cerebral Ischemia After Severe Subarachnoid Hemorrhage" on how electroencephalography (EEG for short) can be used to figure out which patients with a certain type of stroke (subarachnoid hemorrhage) will develop a complication after the initial brain bleed and which will not. … Continue reading Predicting trouble: EEG, NO and stroke
