Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.

Neural and behavioural correlates of speech production in Parkinson's disease

Speech is a complex task requiring highly coordinated movements of a large group of respiratory, laryngeal and articulatory muscles and involves precise integration with auditory and somatosensory feedback to plan and execute speech movements. 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

Development of the collaborative robot – human-robot collaboration

Robots work effectively in factories. For example, in car factories, huge robotic arms pick up car parts and join them to the skeleton of the car, working at less than millimetre and millisecond precision. Read more

FULLY FUNDED PHD: Enhancing human memory formation through learning

TO APPLY, CLICK 'INSTITUTION WEBSITE'. We are seeking a talented, hard working, creative and enthusiastic person for this PhD project, which will provide fundamental insight into human memory, and has the potential to provide novel therapeutic strategies. Read more

State-dependent neural information processing in health and disease

A fully funded PhD studentship is available to work with Dr Shuzo Sakata at University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, UK. This studentship is one of three PhD positions at the newly launched Centre for Doctoral Training in Neurotechnology. Read more

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

Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory

This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’).
