  Computational neuroscience: Statistical signal processing for multivariate neuronal data, Neural computing with Spiking neural networks.
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Dr D Halliday
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How does the human brain work? As you read this text, the pixels on your screen are converted into a series of spike trains passing along the neural pathways in your brain, allowing you to understand the content.
  Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus
  Dr M Montemurro, Dr J Gigg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons.
  Novel Computational Methods for Predicting Transitions in Spatiotemporal Neurodynamics between Attention and Mind-wandering
  Dr E Antonova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will aim to build an explorative and predictive model of the brain that is sensitive to the transitions between sustained attention and mind-wandering states.
  Computational modelling of the emergence of somatosensory cortical maps
  Dr H Saal, Dr SP Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to to build a computational model of the development of cortical somatotopy in humans, focusing specifically on the representation of the hand.
  PhD Studentship Opportunities in the overall Field of Cognition Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Max Planck School of Cognition Doctoral Program. Applications excepted every fall.
  Computer models of structural and molecular changes during learning
  Dr M Stefan
Application Deadline: 4 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of 16 four year PhD Studentships funded by Medical Research Scotland (https://www.medicalresearchscotland.org.uk) to be delivered jointly by the named University and External Partner Organisation (EPO).
  Discovery and modelling of common molecular mechanisms disrupting hearing in genetic mutations associated with hearing loss
  Prof I D Forsythe, Dr A Lecchini-Visintini
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Objectives. Determine the cellular and molecular changes in the auditory brainstem of mice carrying genetic mutations associated with hearing loss and language development and use modelling to evaluate common mechanisms.
  Biologically-plausible neural network models of movement control algorithms
  Dr A Gilra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of neural network implementations of control theory algorithms have been proposed, especially with the recent rise of machine learning.
  Efficient coding in touch: Exploring cortical feature tuning in the somatosensory system through the lens of efficient coding
  Dr H Saal, Dr SP Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficient coding models can successfully explain the emergence of different features detectors along the visual pathway, such as center-surround receptive fields, simple and complex cells, and even higher-level visual neurons.
  Characterising coordination difficulties in autism using computational techniques
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff, Dr A Casson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people. ~80% of autistic individuals also have altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination and abnormal gait patterns, causing considerable problems with activities of daily living.
  PhD Studentship in Vascular Biology and Neuroscience: 3-Dimensional Mapping of the Retinal Neurovascular Unit in Diabetes
  Prof M Taggart, Dr D Steel
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 28 September 2020. 3 Year PhD. Overview. This project seeks to unravel the cellular mechanisms underlying diabetic retinopathy (DR), a leading cause of adult blindness.
  Network modelling of structural and functional brain connectivity in newborns
  Dr R Sanchez-Garcia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years there has been a remarkable progress in our understanding of the brain as a multi-scale networked system. These advances result from the combination of new experimental and imaging techniques with advanced mathematical and computational methods.
  Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory
  Dr J Taylor, Dr A Kafkas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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’).
  Parallel processing by neurons in the thalamocortical pathway
  Dr R Petersen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Each of our brains contains more neurons than there are people on the planet. Everything that we experience or do involves large groups of neurons operating in concert.
  The relationship between social cognition, bodily movement and functions of the neurobiological basis for social alignment
  Dr H Gvirts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded Ph.D. to begin in October 2019. The candidate will work with Dr. Hila Z. Gvirts on the relationship between social cognition, bodily movement and functions of the neurobiological basis for social alignment.
