Worlds First Imaging Study of the Brain on LSD

This is the world’s first LSD brain imaging study. The question we want to answer is how does LSD works in the human brain to produce its characteristic psychological effects. This question has never been addressed before. Understanding more about the physiological effects of LSD will help us shed light on potential medical interventions as well as help us learn more about consciousness. In many respects how the brain works is still a mystery. By researching how psychedelics work, we will be a step closer to understanding how specific areas of the brain are affected to induce certain psychological effects

Can bioinformatics help protect coconut trees from weevils?

Dr. Nanayakkara, in collaboration with the Sri Lanka agricultural council has already developed a portable electronic device that has been found to be very accurate at detecting larvae at an incredibly early stage. This device has already been recommended by the coconut research institute (CRI) to more than 5000 farmers in Sri Lanka as the best detector available but it is too expensive so Thrish wants to build an affordable app to help local farmers.

Conserving the African Wild Dog in Malawi

The African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) is endangered (IUCN) with only 5000 animals remaining in the wild. To date wild dogs in Malawi have been overlooked and undervalued. Despite regular sightings in Kasungu National Park and its potential importance as a viable population, no comprehensive studies have been conducted on wild dogs in Malawi. The presence of the breeding population of wild dogs, the low numbers of competing predators, and the potential to enhance the link to the Zambian population make the Malawi dog population particularly important.

Friendships in the Dwarf Mongoose

Ever wondered how friendships work in other mammals? We are investigating how animals benefit from friendships will advance our knowledge of social behaviour, group living and cooperation, which are key human traits. Supporting this work will also help secure the future of the Dwarf Mongoose Project such long-term monitoring programmes are vital for developing our understanding of the natural world.

Come Dine With Bee

University of Bristol Scientists have a vision to help gardeners create pollinator paradises all over the UK. First they need your help so they can find out which garden plants provide the best sources of pollen and nectar for pollinating insects. This will enable them to advise gardeners and urban land managers on the best plants for pollinating insects. Insect pollinators are under threat but we can help them by planting flowers that provide good sources of pollen and nectar throughout the whole year

What is ocean acidification doing to our oceans?

Scientists at University of Bristol want to understand the impact of ocean acidification on UK crustaceans. The shells and skeletons of marine organisms are crucial to their survival, and perform important tasks such as providing protection from predation and tides. However, ocean acidification is making the weaker…
