  The performance and health benefits of sleep in late adolescent athletes (RDF19/HLS/SER/THOMAS)
  Dr K Thomas
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
An optimal sleep schedule provides the foundation for good health. Adequate sleep has been associated with positive outcomes for cardiovascular, metabolic and mental health, and cognitive, academic and athletic performance.
  Machine learning and sleep: Detecting neural replay in sleep with EEG classifiers
  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
  Prof P Lewis
Application Deadline: 17 March 2019
Memories are spontaneously replayed in sleep, and this replay is critical for their consolidation (strengthening and integration with pre-existing knowledge).
  Computational modelling of memory processing in sleep
  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
  Prof P Lewis
Application Deadline: 17 March 2019
How does the brain store memories? Various computational models exist to explain this, but none of these incorporate sleep.
  Sleep disordered breathing and its relationship to other diseases
  Dr R Huckstepp, Prof N E Dale
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Breathing is a vital function that is essential for life, and any disorders effecting respiration have severe consequences. Sleep apnoea (brief periods where breathing ceases during sleep), is a relatively common disorder of breathing, which occurs in ~25% of men and ~10% of women.
  Effects of fasting-induced torpor on sleep and behaviour in mice
  Prof v Vyazovskiy, Prof D Bannerman, Dr S Peirson
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
This project will investigate the effects of food restriction on torpor in mice, the effects of torpor on subsequent behavioural performance and sleep, and will develop a standardized approach to detect the occurrence of torpor during food restriction.
  Characterising changes and covariation in physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep during childhood and adolescence (AtkinAU18SF)
  Dr A Atkin
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Public health interventions often seek to change the amount of time that people spend in particular behaviours, such as increasing physical activity or reducing sedentary behaviour, with the aim of enhancing health.
  Electrophysiological mechanisms underlying curiosity-based memory
  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
  Dr M Gruber
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
The PhD project will investigate the electrophysiological mechanisms underlying curiosity-based memory in healthy participants. You will be part of the Motivation and Memory Lab (group leader.
  Deep learning for well-being assessment using wearable data - PhD
  Dr R Paulin
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Summary. Photoplethysmography (PPG) is widely used in wearables to record heart activity.
  Longitudinal monitoring of Parkinson’s disease symptom progression using patient reported outcome measures, clinical assessments, and non-invasive sensors
  Dr E Sammler
Applications accepted all year round
Accurate quantification of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) symptom severity is critical to assist neurologists optimize treatment and mitigate PD symptoms.
  AMPK deficiency and respiratory disease
  Prof A M Evans
Applications accepted all year round
Regulation of breathing is critical to our capacity to accommodate deficits in oxygen availability and demand during, for example, sleep and ascent to altitude.
