Reconstruction of the sensory pathway via gene manipulation

Spinal cord injury (SCI) causes impairment of the sensory, motor and autonomic functions. Pilot experiments have demonstrated the possibility of regenerating sensory function after spinal cord injury by expressing alpha9 integrin and kindlin-1 in DRGs. Read more

Cross-modal sensory integration for motor decision making.

Dr Koutsikou’s research group in collaboration with Dr Tobias von der Haar (School of Biosciences, University of Kent) would like to invite applications from outstanding and highly motivated candidates, worldwide, who wish to develop and advance neuroscience research. Read more

Understanding the sensory perception of topically applied products

The cosmetics industry relies on consumer’s evaluation of their products to understand if they are desirable. However, little research exists systematically exploring relationships between sensory perception of tactile properties, consumer liking, emotional response and physical rheology. Read more

Controlling tremor by closed-loop stimulation

Everyone experiences tremor. In healthy people it is no more than a nuisance, but in movement disorders like essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease it can become disabling. Read more

Psychedelic drugs and serotonergic modulation of functional connectivity in neuronal microcircuits

Psychoactive drugs result in profound alterations of our state of consciousness. Well known examples of such drugs are general anaesthetics, in use since mid-19th century, and psychedelics, which are consumed by different societies from times immemorial. Read more

Building Baymax - Flexible Robot Skin: Smart sensors and algorithms

In this project, we aim to develop the next generation of household robots (not vacuum cleaners but multi-task robotic manipulators) that are safe to interact with, even for children and the elderly. Read more

Funded PhD - How do animals stay vigilant during sleep?

Sleep is vital for health and cognition yet is usually associated with unconsciousness meaning individuals are vulnerable to dangers in their environment and are unable to capitalize on resources should they become available (e.g food or a mate). Read more

Exploring Sensorimotor Function and Developing Rehabilitation Strategies using Experimental and Computational Approaches

In collaboration with a multidisciplinary team consisting of biologists, clinicians, engineers, mathematicians, and computational biologists and startups around the globe, we aim to decipher the organizational principles of sensorimotor function in mammals. Read more

MSc by Research: Analysis of the involvement of mechanosensory system in food search and feeding behaviour

Animals rely on their sensory system to find food and avoid predators. Although olfaction and gustation have been well studied, effect of mechanosensation on food search is underexplored although touch is used frequently in human infants. Read more
