EASTBIO: Investigation of TGF-ß2 in healthy brain ageing

  Research Group: Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences
Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. The population of aged individuals is increasing worldwide, which has significant health and socio-economic implications. Read more

Three-dimensional spatial cognition in fish

This project is part of the. DPhil in Biology at the University of Oxford. The ability to navigate is essential to an animal’s survival and success, allowing it to find mates, forage effectively, and find its way home. Read more

The effect of stress on pollinator behaviour

Understanding the effects of stress on pollinators is an urgent and important issue. Animal welfare has developed a range of techniques to look at the effects of stress and poor welfare in vertebrates, but these have rarely been used in invertebrates. Read more

Social relationships and the evolution of complex cognition

  Research Group: Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC)
Research Group. Behavioural Ecology Research Group.  (BEEC). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Claudia Wascher. Theme. Cognitive abilities, Social relationships. Read more

Can transcranial ultrasound be used to change the course of neurodegenerative disease?

White matter impairments are a major component of various neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease(1,2). White matter is composed of neuronal axons and their encasing myelin; a lipid-rich material produced by the oligodendroglia. Read more

Biological rhythms and the dopamine system in cognitive dysfunction

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia are associated with metabolic syndrome, obesity and diabetes. Schizophrenia affects 1.1% of the population and although not the most common psychiatric condition it is arguably the most severe and debilitating. Read more

Identifying cognitive and biochemical changes underlying lifestyle risk factors for dementia

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Dementia describes a group of age-associated conditions of which cognitive decline is a major feature. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is characterised by the onset of a gradual cognitive decline. Read more

Testing Cognition in Three Rodent Models of Intellectual Disability

Recent advances have allowed the creation of rat models of monogenic (single gene) causes of intellectual disability. However, little is known about how these animals perform in complex behavioural tasks. Read more

Precision Medicine DTP – Could disrupted functional connectivity between the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex be an early marker of vascular cognitive impairment in dementia?

  Research Group: Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences
Additional Supervisor. Prof Simon Hanslmayr [University of Glasgow]. Background. The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is critical in maintaining homeostasis in the brain and its dysfunction is evidenced as one of the earliest changes in Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. Read more

Interbrain dynamical functions for anticipating synchronisation under mutual interactions

How can we communicate with other members of society and synchronise our motion in real-time? Crucial to a sense of communication is the ability to entrain perceptually with other members of society, i.e., to be able to follow and to lead, while maintaining individual autonomy. Read more
