  Neuro-biomechanics of movement recovery (PomeroyVU18SF)
  Prof Valerie Pomeroy
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The 3-year research investigation for this studentship will focus on advancing knowledge of the neuro-biomechanical mechanisms of movement recovery after stroke.
  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.
  Perceptual stability in Virtual Reality across the adult lifespan
  Dr P Warren, Dr R Champion
Applications accepted all year round
When we move, stationary parts of the world around us move on the retina. Of course, usually we correctly interpret this retinal motion as due to our own movement and not movement of the surrounding environment.
  Identification of movement patterns indicative of frailty and pre-frailty using wearable activity monitors
  Dr A Rowlands, Dr T Yates, Dr M Bocian, Prof S Conroy
Application Deadline: 3 April 2019
The PhD student will work within the Diabetes Research Centre (DRC) and the dedicated Health Data Research UK facility. The DRC is one of the leading diabetes research centres internationally, also hosting the lifestyle theme of the NIHR Leicester Biomedical Research Centre.
  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.
  Influence of listener movement on tonality and spatial quality in adaptive immersive surround sound systems
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round
Whilst there is a significant body of work that focuses on the spatial quality and tonality of immersive surround sound systems for a sweet spot position, these qualities under a dynamic listening scenario (i.e.
  Stroke risk in a “healthy” patient: personalised modelling of thrombus formation and movement in the blood stream after catheter ablation therapy for atrial fibrillation
  Dr A de Vecchi, Dr O Aslanidi
Applications accepted all year round
Stroke is a common complication of atrial fibrillation (AF), which itself is the most widespread cardiac arrhythmia. However, the assessment of stroke risk is not straightforward in a large population of AF patients who are presented in sinus rhythm (SR), including patients after catheter ablation (CA) therapy, i.e.
  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.
  Supporting Behaviour Change: understanding the links between vision and action in controlling and sequencing multiple movement responses and how this degenerates with age.
  Dr E McSorley
Applications accepted all year round
"Active Vision means that in order to fully understand how we see we
must consider vision in terms of the things we do, the actions we take.
We do not passively process our environment in order to then act upon
it rather we actively interact with our visual environment and interrogate
it by moving our eyes to explore it.
  Investigating novel methods for home-based stroke rehabilitation: combining action observation and motor imagery therapy with integrated technology
  Dr D Eaves, Dr A Innerd
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
1) Investigate the effectiveness of home-based combined action observation and motor imagery (AO+MI) therapy for improving post-stroke rehabilitation.
