This document outlines the projects granted under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 during 2014 with a primary purpose of basic research into the nervous system.
It contains a full list of the 89 projects that were granted.
The first 10 projects are:
structure and function of cerebellar modules (cerebellum, networks, movement, cognition, behaviour)
studies of synaptic plasticity in health and disease (neurological diseases, synaptic plasticity, neuronal dysfunction, signalling molecules)
mechanisms that drive development of brain circuits (brain, neonatal, neuron, sensory experience)
in vivo analysis of basal ganglia function (Parkinson’s disease, deep brain stimulation, motor cortex, neuronal network oscillations)
modulating BDNF levels and role in brain growth (growth factor and brain volume)
sex-linked effects on brain and behaviour (behaviour; brain; psychiatric illness; sex chromosomes; sex differences)
