DISSECTING THE CENTRAL ORGANISATION OF COUGH NEURAL NETWORKS
Grant number: 1078943 | Funding period: 2017 - 2019
Cough is the most prevalent symptom of lung disease and the most common reason for people to seek medical advice. However, cough neural processes are poorly defined and as a result current cough therapies are largely ineffective making cough a significant unmet clinical problem. This project will novel viral strategies to dissect and manipulate cough neural pathways in the brain, providing insights into the neural processing of airway sensations and coughing.
