  Decoding movement kinematics from subpopulations of motor cortex neurons
  Dr T V Gerdjikov, Dr J Liu
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Fine motor control involves the ability to reach, grasp and release objects. It is a fundamental aspect of motor behaviour essential for feeding, self-care and the manipulation of tools.
  Neurocomputational mechanisms of modularity in human motor control
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr I Delis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human motor behaviour is the outcome of the combined action of an extensive neural circuit that generates and controls movement and the mechanical properties of the human body.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Evaluating motor and cognitive function through gaze-control technology
  Dr D Souto
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gaze-control technology has proved invaluable in assisting people with neurodegenerative conditions, such as Motor Neuron Disease (MND) or Cerebral Palsy (CP), at times dramatically improving their quality of life by extending their ability to communicate independently.
  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr R Swidbert
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most animal movements are driven by muscle contractions controlled by the nervous system, but there is now considerable evidence that passive forces, originating in muscles, tendons or other tissues, interact with active forces to generate limb movements in both vertebrates and invertebrates (Page et al.
  Embodied learning: How motor difficulties constrain learning during parent-child interaction in infants/toddlers with Down syndrome and Williams syndrome
  Research Group: Centre for Mind and Behaviour
  Dr D D'Souza, Dr H D'Souza, Dr J Lambie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proposed supervisory team. Dr Dean D’Souza ([email protected])- (Anglia Ruskin University), Dr Hana D’Souza - (Cambridge University), Dr John Lambie ([email protected])- (Anglia Ruskin University).

  SOD1 The Key protein for finding a cure for familial Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.

  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  Interactive muscle memory (motor memory)
  Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round

  Kinesin-mediated transport of Marek’s disease virus
  Prof A Straube, Prof V Nair, Dr M Fife
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marek's disease is a fatal, highly contagious, neoplastic disease affecting chickens. It is caused by an alphaherpesvirus called Gallid herpesvirus-2 or Marek's Disease Virus (MDV).
  Next generation electrical motor drives for wind and automotive applications
  Dr S Durovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The automotive, aerospace, offshore wind and manufacturing sectors are looking for much improved performance envelope electrical machines and drives to underpin ambitions plans for market electrification.
  Towards an understanding of perceptual-cognitive expertise in sport coaching (ref: SF20/SER/HENDRY)
  Dr D Hendry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the hallmarks of expert sport coaches is their ability to recognize patterns of play, anticipate game action sequences and make the necessary adjustments to provide their team with an advantage.
  Microtubule motors in cell migration and integrin trafficking
  Prof V Allan, Prof P Woodman, Dr P Caswell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration is vital for the development and health of multicellular organisms. However, enhanced cell migration is also a hallmark of cancer cells, and contributes greatly to metastasis.

  Prof W Holderbaum, Prof S Nasuto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a treatment that applies small electrical charges to a muscle that has become paralysed or weakened, due to damage in your brain or spinal cord.
