Virtual brain lab brings together world-leading neuroscientists
Twenty one leading neuroscience groups from around the world, including seven from UCL, have formed a 'virtual brain lab' to test how the brain controls learning and decision making. The 10 million International Brain Lab brings together groups from UK, USA, France, Switzerland and Portugal to uncover how complex networks of brain cells support our ability to learn and make decisions. This new initiative, jointly funded by the Simons Foundation and Wellcome, involves seven research groups from across multiple UCL Faculties.

Links between deprivation and risk of violence-related injury
Adolescent girls from deprived areas are at greater risk of interpersonal violence than girls from more affluent areas because they feel distrusted by their parents, suggests a study by Cardiff University. Lead author of the study and Director of the Violence Research Group at Cardiff University, Professor Jonathan Shepherd, said: “We discovered that deprivation makes adolescent girls six times more likely to suffer violence-related injury than girls in affluent areas.

Budget cigarettes linked to higher infant mortality rates in EU countries
Budget cigarettes linked to higher infant mortality rates in EU countries
A study of 23 EU countries found that larger price differences between high and low priced cigarettes are associated with higher infant mortality. Scientists already know that high cigarette prices reduce smoking rates , and that levels of smoking affect infant mortality. However until now, there have been no studies to explore the link between cigarette price differentials and infant mortality.

Research creates new possibilities to design new materials with strange and exotic properties
The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics celebrated the rich behaviour of two-dimensional (2D) materials, like atoms, molecules, or electrons that are confined to move on a flat surface. Compared to their three dimensional (3D) counterparts, such materials exhibit new and exotic properties, the elucidation of which is at the cutting edge of condensed matter physics research.
