  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Investigating modifier transcripts in mouse models of motor neuron disease
  Dr L Murray, Dr E Hudlund
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The term “motor neuron disease” encompasses a spectrum of disorders in which motor neurons are the primary pathological target.
  Investigating modifiers transcripts in models of motor neuron disease
  Dr L Murray, Prof T Gillingwater
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The term ‘motor neuron disease’ refers to a group of disorders in which motor neurons are the primary target. The search for therapeutic agents to treat motor neuron disease often focuses on one subtype with a specific cause.
  Excitatory interneuron defects in motor neurone disease
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Applications accepted all year round
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an untreatable disease that causes degeneration of motor neurons, typically resulting in death within 2-3 years of diagnosis.
  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 the pathophysiology of Motor Neuron Disease (MND/ALS) using rodent and human iPSC-based models
  Prof G Miles, Prof S Chandran
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
There is growing evidence that early changes in neuronal function contribute to the pathogenesis of Motor Neuron Disease/Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (MND/ALS).
  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  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.
  Neural modulation of cognitive-motor interference in ageing
  Dr S Chiou, Prof O Jensen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. Trunk muscles play an important role in the maintenance of upright posture and balance. Postural control and balance are often altered in older people and that is significantly associated with higher risk of falling.
  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.
