  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.
  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 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.
  Movement control using dynamics matching and anticipatory coupling
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round
"There is a lot of interest in explaining motor coordination and control. Such models allow for better understanding of the healthy coordination and provide diagnostic tools and starting points for rehabilitation solutions in case of motor disorders due to stroke or neural degeneration.
  Understanding eye-hand coordination in object interception – a computational modelling approach
  Dr S-H Yeo
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project with Dr Yeo will focus on understanding how we perform interception. Interceptive movements--such as catching a gently thrown ball, quickly grabbing a tilting cup to avoid spilling or even just handshaking someone--feel like trivial everyday tasks for us that seemingly look too simple to study.
  Advanced Spectral Analysis and Data Sonification in Neuroscience: investigating novel methods of studying and analysing EEG
  Dr D Vicinanza, Dr F Panin
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. The research will be conducted within the Sound and Game Engineering (SAGE) Research Group in collaboration with the Faculty of Medical Science.
  Inter-individual differences in the responses of patients with low back pain to exercise interventions.
  Dr C Ryan, Dr S Wellburn, Prof G Atkinson, Prof A Batterham
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
The aim of this PhD programme is to investigate if true and clinically important inter-individual differences in response to exercise therapy exist for people with low back pain.
  Moving together in time: the effects of coordinated movements on physical performance, social cognition and overall wellbeing
  Dr J Honisch
Applications accepted all year round
Our Social Cognition and Movement Rehabilitation Lab (SCMR) investigates various topics on the role of non˗verbal behaviours in everyday conversations, social-cognitive effects of interpersonal synchrony (two or more individuals moving together in time) and explores movement interventions (e.g.
