  Neural mechanisms underlying pain interference with motor learning in the human spinal cord
  Prof D Falla, Dr A Khatibi
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project involves simultaneous imaging of the brain and spinal cord using Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Humans. The successful applicant will conduct a project evaluating changes in the connectivity between the brain and the spinal cord following the acquisition of new motor skills during the experience of pain.

The aim of this project is to adopt a mixed methods approach to determine the various factors – innate, learnt, and environmental – that ultimately contribute to skill acquisition and/or expertise within a specified domain.
  Characterising coordination difficulties in autism using computational techniques
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff, Dr A Casson
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. ~80% of autistic individuals also have altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination and abnormal gait patterns, causing considerable problems with activities of daily living.
