Showing 1 to 10 of 12
  The dopaminergic basis of behaviour
  Dr W NORTON, Dr J McCutcheon
Applications accepted all year round
The neurotransmitter dopamine has an important role in the vertebrate brain, modulating behaviours that include locomotion, aggression, feeding and reward.
  Sensory regulation of dopaminergic neurons
  Dr P Overton
Applications accepted all year round
The neurotransmitter dopamine is implicated in a wide range of brain processes and dysfunction of the dopamine systems leads to severe neurological and psychiatric problems.
  The interaction of performance and learning in action selection
  Dr M Humphries
Applications accepted all year round
Reinforcement learning models of behaviour separate the learning and performance of actions. In these models, appropriate actions are learnt by prediction error feedback from their consequences.
  School of Psychology Studentship in Behavioural Neuroscience: The Neural Substrates of Inhibitory Learning
  Prof H Cassaday
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
This is an opportunity to research a defined project in an area of behavioural neuroscience, specifically on the neural substrates of inhibitory learning.
  PhD in Psychological Medicine & Clinical Neurosciences - Analysing the mechanisms underlying dystonia pathogenesis through characterisation of a Drosophila melanogaster model of Myoclonus Dystonia
  Dr K Peall, Dr O Peters
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
ackground. Dystonia is one of the most common movement disorders, affecting ~1% of the population worldwide. Well recognised forms include writer’s cramp, although more severe forms are frequently observed.
  Targeting TFEB to correct autophagy/lysosomal deficits in Parkinson’s disease
  Prof R Wade-Martins
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Commercial partner. Biogen, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder but disease-modifying therapies are still lacking.
  Influence of melanopsin-containing ganglion cell photoreceptors on the physiology of the mammalian retina
  Dr M Cameron
Applications accepted all year round
The neural network of the mammalian retina is one of the most studied within the central nervous system. However, surprises are still common, with a third type of photoreceptor discovered in recent years.
  Stem cell transplant efficacy in Parkinson’s disease
  Dr E Lane
Applications accepted all year round
Parkinson’s disease is a movement disorder, primarily caused by the loss of nigrostriatal dopamine. Drug therapies are effective in early stages of the disease but new interventions are required in mid to late disease stages.
  Tryptophan metabolism and fruit fly behaviour: implications for psychosis
  Prof F Giorgini, Prof C P Kyriacou, Mr C Breda
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degrades contains several neuroactive metabolites which have been implicated in the pathogenesis of psychotic and neurodegenerative disorders.
  Understanding the neurobiology of schizophrenia
  Prof K Fone
Applications accepted all year round
Schizophrenia is a very common psychiatric disorder for which we do not know the underlying causes or have adequate treatments for the symptoms.
