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.”

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.
Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.
In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
