  • We could offer one placement for the IBRO/PERC sponsored Young Investigator Training Programme to visit our lab for 2-3 weeks prior to the FENS meeting in Glasgow. An application form is available on the FENS website. Deadline is the 16th March 2020.


  • Together with my colleagues David Hughes (University of Glasgow) and Shuzo Sakata (University of Strathclyde) we will organise an Introductory Course on Optogenetics to be held prior to the FENS Meeting in Glasgow on the 10th July 2020.


  • A new preprint now online: 'A community-based transcriptomics classification and nomenclature of neocortical cell types', released at arXiv, 6th Sept 2019.


  • Preprint: 'Disentangling Neuronal Inhibition and Inhibitory Pathways in the Lateral Habenula', bioRxiv 633271.


Our main research interest lies in understanding the role of various types of neurons in cortical and subcortical meso- and microcircuits.

Using state-of-art techniques such as Channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2)-assisted circuit mapping, electrophysiological methods, immunohistochemistry and anatomical reconstructions we aim to investigate the balance between excitation and inhibition, and the cause and mechanisms of neuronal hyperexcitability in disease.
