  Motor Control, Motor Learning and Brain Stimulation - investigating how the brain controls movement and how it allows us to learn new motor skills
  Dr N Jenkinson
Applications accepted all year round
My research incorporates a range of techniques including non-invasive brain stimulation, electrophysiological recording, eye-tracking, neuroimaging and behavioural techniques.
  Characterising motor impairments in autism using computational techniques
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people.
  Investigating motor impulse control in Parkinson’s disease using non-invasive brain stimulation
  Dr H MacDonald, Dr C J McAllister
Applications accepted all year round
The ability to control our urges and impulses is arguably one thing that sets humans apart from other species. We have the capacity to think before we act.
  Investigating the incidence of falls and relationship to motor ability in autistic adults
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Stanmore, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people. In addition to these social symptoms, >70% of autistic individuals show signs of altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination, unstable balance and abnormal gait patterns.
  Evaluation of the validity of dietary biomarkers as surrogate indicators of nutritional state in patients with motor neurone disease: a pilot study
  Dr H Stavroulakis, Prof C McDermott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Motor neurone disease (MND), is a progressive degenerative disorder of the upper and lower motor neurones, causing weakness and wasting of muscles controlling limb movement, speech, swallowing, and breathing, leading to eventual death, usually from respiratory complications.
  The role of neuromuscular junction (NMJ) degeneration in age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass and function
  Prof MJ Jackson, Prof A McArdle, Dr A Vasilaki
Applications accepted all year round
The NMJ (or motor endplate) is a highly specialised chemical synapse that transmits action potentials from motor neurons to muscle fibres.
  Investigation of ataxin-2 as a therapeutic target for frontotemporal dementia and motor neurone disease
  Prof S Pickering-Brown
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is the second most common form of dementia in people under the age of 65. Due to the fact that it usually affects people of working age, the effect on their families is devastating.
  Predictive motor control in autism: establishing whether movement difficulties are caused by problems with prediction
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff, Dr S Baines
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long condition affecting communication and social interactions. ~70% of autistic individuals also have movement difficulties such as poor eye-hand coordination and unstable balance.
  Characterising the human Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) synaptic proteome
  Dr C Henstridge, Dr T Wishart
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is caused by the breakdown of upper and lower motor neurons leading to the progressive weakness and atrophy of muscle, often resulting in respiratory failure and death within a few years of diagnosis.
  Smart Monitoring and Prediction of Generator and Drive Motor Temperature
  Prof R Dixon, Dr S Hilmansen
Applications accepted all year round
Overheating of electrical machines leads to rapid failure. Hence, the main limitation on electrical generators and drive is a temperature limit, which is generally enforced with an electrical fuse (current limit).
