How do prenatal steroids elevate autism likelihood?

The causes of autism remain unknown. Some literature has showed a link between higher levels of steroid hormones such as testosterone in the womb and autism in children, particularly males. Read more

Deep phenotyping of genetic syndromes associated with autism

Autism is an extremely heterogeneous condition. Some of this variability results from genetic heterogeneity. Some rare genetic conditions appear to have an increased prevalence of autism. Read more

Music and language processing in autism and amusia

Music and language are fundamental traits of human existence. They both rely on complex sound sequences to convey meaning. It has been hotly debated whether the two are processed through distinct cognitive modules or using shared mechanisms. Read more

Brain Connectivity Correlates of Level of Construal and Psychological Distance, across the Autism Spectrum and across Cultures, Genders, and Individuals

Project ID. S3 5. Supported by findings in genetics and systems neuroscience, categorical classifications of neurodevelopmental disorders are being reframed as sets of dimensional variations that overlap one another and that exist throughout the general population. Read more

Computer Vision for Ambient Assisted Living

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3-year full-time or 6-year part time PhD project. The PhD will be based in the School of Computing and will be supervised by . Read more

PhD Studentship in quantitative genetics of neurodevelopment

The student will have the opportunity to work on a project analysing data from large-scale longitudinal and developmental cohorts with a focus on infant and child phenotypes. Read more

Brain Rhythms and Natural Language Processing (NLP)

The main goal of our research group (Neural Oscillations in Multisensory Communication Group at the Centre for Human Brain Health (CHBH), University of Birmingham) is to understand the brain’s information processing in human communication. Read more

PhDs in Education

Our research aims to improve policy and practice in education locally, regionally and internationally. We invite applications for research study in any of our research strengths:  . Read more

How do hormones regulate memory?

Deficiencies of thyroid hormone are common throughout the globe. Adult-onset hypothyroidism is prevalent in around 8-10% of the population and is associated with reproductive disorders, anxiety, depression and impairment of memory. Read more

Inhibition and excitation in the brain

An appropriate balance between excitatory and inhibitory neural processes in the brain underlies healthy psychological function. Two examples of conditions in which there is an imbalance are autism and ADHD. Read more

Mechanobiology of neurogenesis and synapse formation in the brain.

Neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism or schizophrenia, can be associated with an imbalance between inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmission in key brain regions. Read more

PhD opportunities in Cognitive Neuroscience

Join cognitive neuroscientists, clinical neuroscientists, neuropsychologists, neurophysiologists, psychopharmacologists, sports and exercise psychologists, and carry out cutting-edge interdisciplinary research to understand and restore human brain function and health. Read more

Understanding the societal barriers experienced by autistic adults

Research demonstrates that the mental and physical health of autistic adults is significantly poorer. than for non-autistic adults (Bishop-Fitzpatrick & Rubenstein, 2019; Cage, 2018). Read more
