  Emotion regulation in strategic decision-making: A cognitive neuroscience approach
  Dr D Talmi, Prof G Hodgkinson, Dr P Warren
Applications accepted all year round
The emotional response to wins and losses influences decision-making. Emotion regulation refers to a family of techniques that modify the emotional response.
  Optimisation of co-registered functional near-infrared spectroscopy and electroencephalogram measurement of early childhood neurocognitive development
  Dr G Scerif, Dr K Holmboe
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Gowerlabs Ltd, London. Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a relatively new optical imaging technique that enables non-invasive assessment of functional brain activation outside a scanner environment.
  Neural modulation of cognitive-motor interference in ageing
  Dr S Chiou, Prof O Jensen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. Trunk muscles play an important role in the maintenance of upright posture and balance. Postural control and balance are often altered in older people and that is significantly associated with higher risk of falling.
  Effects of PDE4B inhibition on excessive weight gain-induced impairment in cognitive function in laboratory mice
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr S Clapcote, Dr J. Johnston
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In humans, obesity impairs cognition and produces atrophy of brain regions associated with learning and memory. Individual cognitive performance declines with increases in body mass and energy consumption.
  eSports: perceptual, cognitive and visuomotor skill development in the digital world
  Dr D Souto, Dr P Duke
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Competitive video-gaming, also known as eSports, is rapidly growing to occupy the role of traditional sporting events. eSports has become a billion-dollar industry, supports professional leagues, has global reach via online tournaments and is being considered for inclusion in the 2024 Paris Olympics.
  Individual differences in cognitive and affective control - examining the mechanisms underlying cognition-emotion interaction and successful emotion regulation.
  Dr D Asioli
Applications accepted all year round
Individuals vary greatly in how well they can regulate their emotions, and difficulties in emotion regulation have been linked to disorders such as depression.
  Cognitive brain research on multisensory research: examining the function of touch and its relationship with other senses
  Prof R Kitada
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a Ph.D student position on cognitive neuroscience research on touch. We touch familiar objects from cups to companion animals.
  Cognitive impairment, decision making and mental capacity in Motor Neurone Disease
  Research Group: The Euan MacDonald Centre for Motor Neurone disease
  Dr S Abrahams, Dr S M Mulhern
Application Deadline: 7 February 2019
Cognitive and behavioural impairments are common in motor neurone disease (MND) affecting up to 50% of patients, of which 15% suffer from a behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia (Goldstein and Abrahams, 2013).
  Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round
A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  Impact of maternal intermittent fasting on cognitive development
  Dr N Ashton, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round
Many pregnant Muslim women take part in the daily fast during the month of Ramadan, even though they are exempt. The long term effects on the child are not fully known; however an association between exposure to fasting in utero and an increased incidence of mental impairment in children has been shown.
