The 2020 Sherrington Talks took place on Friday 12 and Friday 19 June 2020 via Microsoft Teams and were presented by third year DPAG DPhil Students.

Four prize winners were selected by a judging panel comprised of members of the Graduate Studies Committee. Prizes of Blackwell’s gift tokens have been awarded; £50 to each of the joint winners and £25 to each of the runners-up.

 

Congratulations to the four prize winners:

Winners - Kyung Chan (KC) Park and Dr Lukas Krone

KC Park, who is supervised by Associate Professor Pawel Swietach and Associate Professor Nicola Smart, gave a presentation entitled: "Propionate anions accumulated systemically in propionic acidaemia produce sustained remodelling of cardiac epigenetics and excitation-contraction coupling."

Lukas Krone, who is supervised by Associate Professor Vladyslav Vyazovskiy, Professor Colin Akerman (Pharmacology) and Professor Zoltán Molnár, gave a presentation entitled: "Cortical regulation of global sleep homeostasis."

Researchers reveal surprising simplicity behind our ability to hear

Postdoctoral Publication Research Students

A computational modelling study from the King Group demonstrates that the way sounds are transformed from the ear to the brain’s auditory cortex may be simpler than expected. These findings not only highlight the value of computational modelling for determining the principles underlying neural processing, but could also be useful for improving treatments for patients with hearing loss.
