Computational, psychological and physiological basis of fatigue in motor learning: Combining decision neuroscience with spinal imaging

Most daily tasks, including learning new motor skills, require the exertion of effort over an extended period of time. From a workout at the gym to deciding whether to persist with a task at work, much of our activities require us to keep deciding that effort is ‘worth it’. Read more

Understanding and optimising motor cortex plasticity

Motor learning is a key skill required at all stages of life but is crucially important for recovery and development. A mechanistic understanding of the biological processes that underpin skill acquisition in healthy and pathological states is an important scientific and clinical goal. Read more

Hierarchical reinforcement learning

One of the most fundamental problems in artificial intelligence (AI) is how to enable autonomous development of action hierarchies, in other words, how to endow artificial agents with the ability to autonomously form useful high-level behaviours (for example, grasping) from existing behavioural units (for example, primitive sensory and motor actions available to a robot).

Decoding Speech using Invasive Brain-Computer Interfaces

For individuals who have impaired speech or complete loss of speech as a result of neurodegenerative diseases such as motor neurone disease (MND) or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), there is an urgent need to develop revolutionary technologies using the latest advances in automatic speech recognition (ASR) and brain signal processing (BSP).

Neural code for action organisation – linking neural oscillations to mental representations

The ability to organise one's body for action without having to think about it is taken for granted, whether it is tying your shoelaces, typing an email on a computer keyboard, or performing a new dance routine. Read more

Precision Medicine DTP - Analysis of Parkinson’s speech patterns for digital biomarker discovery and intervention assessment

  Research Group: Centre for Medical Informatics
Additional Supervisor - Dr Angela C. Roberts [Western University, London Ontario Canada]. Background. Parkinson’s disease (PD) affects motor and cognitive abilities and leads to communication impairments that significantly impact on quality of life for patients and their caregivers. Read more

Neural and behavioural correlates of speech production in Parkinson's disease

Speech is a complex task requiring highly coordinated movements of a large group of respiratory, laryngeal and articulatory muscles and involves precise integration with auditory and somatosensory feedback to plan and execute speech movements. Read more

Assessing the impact of neurostimulation in mild cognitive impairment (Ref FHMS - FF - 15 PSY)

Are you interested in AI and neurodegenerative disorders? If yes, then this could be the right PhD project for you! We are looking for a bright and highly motivated student to utilise modern AI algorithms to analyse biomedically relevant data to study potential treatment strategies for dementia. Read more

Advanced brain-computer interface

A brain-computer interface (BCI) provides a direct communication pathway between a human brain and an external device. Using appropriate sensors and data processing algorithms, a BCI maps patterns of brain activity associated with a volitional thought onto signals suitable for communication and control. Read more
