  Gender and Sex(uality): Legal Perspectives on Transformation and Change (Advert Reference: RDF19/BL/LAW/ASHFORD)
  Prof C Ashford
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Applications are invited for a project addressing the theme of transformation and change in the area of gender, sexuality and law.
  Serotonergic modulation of functional connectivity in cortical microcircuits
  Dr M Okun, Prof R Quian Quiroga
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Psychoactive drugs result in profound alterations of our state of consciousness. Well known examples of such drugs are general anaesthetics, in use since mid-19th century, and hallucinogens, which are consumed from times immemorial.
  An investigation of trauma, dissociation and insecure attachment styles in the context of psychosis
  Dr K Berry, Dr F Varese, Dr S Bucci
Applications accepted all year round
The proposed mixed-methods PhD aims to explore the impact of trauma, dissociation and insecure attachment styles in people who experience from psychosis.
  Characterizing sensory signalling at nanoscale and millisecond-order resolution
  Prof K Staras
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Neurons communicate by the release of neurotransmitter-containing vesicles at the synapse (see Staras, Neuron 2012). Everything that we see or hear depends on the operation of synapses that are specialized to transmit sensory information.
  Elemental perceptual process in insect vision for navigation
  Dr J Niven, Dr P Graham
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Visual navigation, by which animals find places (e.g. home) defined by memories of a visual scene, has basic similarities across a wide range of species from ants to humans.
  How do nitric oxide synthase interneurons modulate information processing and control blood flow?
  Dr C Hall, Prof M Maravall
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Sensory processing is regulated by diverse populations of interneurons that modulate excitatory neuronal activity to shape information transmission.
  How sequence recognition emerges from neuronal activity
  Prof M Maravall
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The world around us is replete with stimuli that unfold over time and whose temporal structure is essential to their meaning. A patterned stream of sounds such as music or speech, or a surface scanned by our fingertips, can only be identified by sensing the order and timing of the constituent notes, phonemes or ridges.
  Plasticity of visual processing in primary visual cortex
  Prof L Lagnado
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The responses of pyramidal neurons in primary visual cortex (V1) of mice are altered under different behavioural states.
  Putting the spotlight on taste: behavioural and optical interrogation of the neural mechanisms of hedonic taste perception
  Dr E Koya, Dr H C Crombag
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Our sense of taste and ability to derive pleasure from foods are essential for survival. Taste also guides our food preferences and aversions, reinforces appetitive learning, and adds pleasure to a mundane, but essential activity to maintain health.
  The role of non-synaptic interactions in odour object recognition
  Prof T Nowotny, Prof G Kemenes
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Odorants are chemicals in the air that animals can detect with their olfactory organs to gather information about their environment.
