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.”

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
