Professor Vladyslav Vyazovskiy, a neuroscientist here in DPAG, has contributed to a new book, which reflects on the experiences of night-shift workers. 

The book, for which Vlad is co-author, brings together collections from other neuroscientists, as well as anthropologists, authors, cab-drivers, and artists, all pondering the conditions of nocturnal labour.

"Through each contribution," reads the book's blurb, "the night shift is interpreted as a displaced, ambivalent space - a disciplined protocol, of calm meditation, of queer autonomy, of hedonistic resistance, or of exhaustion beyond words".

New pathway established for multisensory cortical communication

Integration of information across the senses is critical for perception. This activity is thought to arise primarily from connections made in the brain's sensory cortical areas. A new paper from the King Group uncovers evidence for the first time on the little understood role of subcortical circuits in shaping the multisensory properties of primary cortical neurons.

Iron deficiency anaemia in early pregnancy increases risk of heart defects, suggests new research

In animal models, iron deficient mothers have a greatly increased risk of having offspring with congenital heart disease (CHD). The risk of CHD can be greatly reduced if the mother is given iron supplements very early in pregnancy. Additionally, embryos from a mouse model of Down Syndrome were particularly vulnerable to the effects of maternal iron deficiency, leading to a higher risk of developing severe heart defects.
