This funding enables Goldsmiths to develop a programme of clinical research at the Blackheath Centre and also enhances the innovative one-year MSc in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience.
The partnership provides a unique opportunity for students on the MSc to complement their academic studies with highly relevant clinical experience. Students can apply to work at the Centre as paid part-time rehabilitation assistants, or carry out clinical research for their dissertation. On campus, students have access to new world-class laboratories for neuroscience research using EEG, computational modelling, psychophysiology, behavioural genetics, and psychopharmacology methodologies.
The programme is highly relevant to psychologists keen to pursue further academic research in experimental psychology or neuroscience; to healthcare professionals with an interest in brain injury or neuroscience; and to graduates who want to develop their knowledge of this field for clinical careers.
Professor Alan Pickering, Head of the Psychology Department at Goldsmiths said:” We are delighted that the Blackheath Centre continues to support this collaboration. Working with clinicians at the Blackheath Centre over the last year has strengthened our capacity to understand the effects of brain injury and helped to contribute to the development of effective interventions”.
Manager of the Blackheath Centre, Catherine Symington adds: “I am delighted that we are able to continue this exciting partnership which has important benefits for patients, staff and students. We are looking forward to building on the achievements of the first year.”

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
