Brain structural plasticity, degeneration and regeneration: from molecules to behaviour

  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
Brain structural plasticity, degeneration and regeneration. from molecules to behaviour. The aim of the project is to discover and test candidate molecular mechanisms underlying structural brain plasticity, degeneration and regeneration, and the link between molecules, structural cell change, circuits and behaviour.

Group think: The impact of sociality on brain shape in mammals

A defining feature of mammals is a large and complex brain. One of the most prevalent theories in brain evolution is the Social Brain Hypothesis, that large brains evolved to cope with processing increasing amounts of social information. Read more

EASTBIO: Development of a validated human iPSCs-derived microglia and brain organoid co-culture platform to investigate neuro-immune interactions

This fully funded, 4-year PhD project is part of a competition funded by the. BBSRC EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership. The overarching goal of this project is to develop a validated human microglia and cortical brain organoid co-culture platform to investigate neuro-immune interactions. Read more

Investigating neural oscillations in the migraine brain using electrophysiology and behavioural performance

Migraine is a common but debilitating neurological conditions, however it is poorly understood and commonly misdiagnosed. Migraine has strong links to vision – during attacks individuals report aversion to light, and in between attacks they typically show poorer performance on simple visual tasks. Read more

Development of an automated CT-brain analysis tool

Commercial partner: . Brainomix. , Oxford. Background. CT-brain imaging is the standard brain imaging modality used in the NHS and globally and is cheaper and better tolerated than MRI particularly in older, frail, multimorbid patients in whom MRI may be contraindicated. Read more

Function Brain imaging in disease: what are the activation maps really telling us?

Functional brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have already revolutionized how we can study the processes and functioning of the healthy human brain and are making an increasing impact on our understanding on what goes wrong in disease of the brain. Read more

Using multimodal neuroimaging to predict individual differences in responsiveness to transcranial direct brain stimulation

Project outline. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that can successfully modulate neural excitability and plasticity by delivering a small current via electrodes placed on the scalp. Read more

Ageing, extracellular vesicles, and brain health

Exercise is beneficial for health! Indeed exercise promotes healthy ageing. Regular exercise can increase the number of years we live in good health, reduce the risk of disease onset, and promote a better quality of life. 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

PhD studentship in Engineering, Physics, Neuroscience or medicine to work on Imaging circuit activity in the brain in epilepsy with Electrical Impedance Tomography.

A 4 year funded PhD studentship in Engineering, Physics, Neuroscience, Medicine or similar background is available in the UCL Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering in an interdisciplinary Bioengineering/Neuroscience group to work on Imaging fast neural circuit activity in the brain in epilepsy with Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT). .

Brain rhythms that serve as the ‘binder’ for memory and concept formation

Memories are like the internal movies of our lives, allowing us to replay past events or to imagine the future. Unlike movies however, scientists do not yet understand how the brain merges information from the senses to form new memories, nor how it could be stimulated to improve or disrupt memories.

A Scaled Framework for Impact and Blast Induced Traumatic Brain Injury Risk Assessment

Despite recent efforts to understand impact and blast induced traumatic brain injury (TBI), there are still no widely accepted injury criteria for humans which highly restrict using of numerical methods. Read more

Leverhulme Doctoral Training Programme for the Ecological Study of the Brain (Ecological Brain)

The Leverhulme Doctoral Training Programme for the Ecological Study of the Brain (ECOLOGICAL BRAIN DTP) is an interdisciplinary programme that works towards an integrative science approach that brings together psychology, neuroscience, education, geography, computer science, engineering and architecture to bridge the gap between basic scientific discovery and the application of this knowledge.
