Age dependent plasticity in endocannabinoid modulation of pain processing through postnatal development (2017)
Journal Article
H-T. Kwok, C., Devonshire, I. M., Imraish, A., Greenspon, C. M., Lockwood, S., Fielden, C., …Hathway, G. J. (2017). Age dependent plasticity in endocannabinoid modulation of pain processing through postnatal development. PAIN, 158(11), doi:10.1097/j.pain.0000000000001027. ISSN 0304-3959

Significant age and experience-dependent remodelling of spinal and supraspinal neural networks occur resulting in altered pain responses in early life. In adults endogenous opioid peptide and endocannabinoid (ECs) pain control systems exist which mod... Read More

A quantification of the relationship between neuronal responses in the rat rostral ventromedial medulla and noxious stimulation-evoked withdrawal reflexes (2015)
Journal Article
noxious stimulation-evoked withdrawal reflexes. European Journal of Neuroscience, 42(1), doi:10.1111/ejn.12942. ISSN 0953-816X

The rostral ventromedial medulla (RVM) regulates a range of involuntary behaviours but is most often associated with nociception via the action of pronociceptive ON cells and antinociceptive OFF cells. The phasic responses of ON and OFF cells determi... Read More

Triazine-based graphitic carbon nitride: a two-dimensional semiconductor (2014)
Journal Article
Siller-Algara, G., Severin, N., Chong, S. Y., Björkman, T., Palgrave, R. G., Laybourn, A., …Bojdys, M. J. (2014). Triazine-based graphitic carbon nitride: a two-dimensional semiconductor. Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 53(29), doi:10.1002/anie.201402191. ISSN 1433-7851

Graphitic carbon nitride has been predicted to be structurally analogous to carbon-only graphite, yet with an inherent bandgap. We have grown, for the first time, macroscopically large crystalline thin films of triazine-based, graphitic carbon nitrid... Read More
