Dr Jane Haley, Edinburgh Neuroscience Coordinator, awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List

Congratulations to Dr Jane Haley (Edinburgh Neuroscience) who has been awarded a Member of the Order of the British Empire in the Queen's Birthday Honours List in recognition for Services to Science Engagement and Education.



Kristina Micheva, Ph.D.

Senior Research Scientist

Kristina Micheva is interested in a wide variety of problems related to the structure and function of neural circuits.  She is co-inventor of the array tomography technique, and has been a leader in the application of this technique to interesting neurobiological questions.  Her current projects include the characterization of proteins at identified synapses in neocortex and the study of myelination of inhibitory interneuronal axons.

 

Jason Clark, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Jason Clark researches the cellular mechanisms modulating synaptic transmission and plasticity, and how these mechanisms may influence neural circuit dynamics involved in cognitive functions such as learning and memory.  In addition, he is interested in understanding how these mechanisms may change under pathological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

 

Marianna Kiraly, Ph.D.

Research Scientist

Marianna Kiraly is focusing on studying how the induction of certain synaptic plasticity states between pairs of pyramidal neurons correlates with the resulting anatomical changes (postsynaptic density, volume of postsynaptic spines, glutamate receptor transportation). Another one of her current projects addresses the significance of axon myelination in signal transmission between interneuron – principal neuron pairs (multiple sclerosis model).
