  Simultaneous measures of brain and blood oxygenation: Revealing the function behind ‘functional’ brain mapping signals
  Dr M Jones, Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A technique called blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can determine levels of different activity in parts of the living human brain and how malfunctions can occur in disease.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will test the potential of a molecular mechanism that we recently discovered, in modulating brain structural plasticity versus neurodegeneration.
  Determining brain glycosylation in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr C Sutton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing age is associated with lower levels of cognitive performance; concomitant with this is a decrease in brain glucose metabolism.
  When do astrocytes contribute to the control of brain blood flow?
  Dr C Howarth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order that the brain can function normally, it is essential that blood flow within the brain is well matched to neuronal metabolic demand.
  Computational Fluid Dynamics Evaluation of Mixing Zones in Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation Circuits to Prevent Brain Injury
  Dr J Pauls
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Critical Care Research Group (CCRG), based at the The Prince Charles Hospital (TPCH) in Brisbane, Australia, is seeking highly motivated, skilled and committed PhD candidates to join our multidisciplinary and international research team to commence a PhD project.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Modulation of Brain Energy Metabolism by Astrocytic G-protein-coupled Receptors
  Dr A Teschemacher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation
  Dr J Bond, Dr E E Morrison, Prof M Peckham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation.
  Effect of dietary vitamin B supplementation on brain neural activity
  Prof Y Zheng, Prof C Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of vitamins B6, B12 and folate, for optimal physiological and neurological functioning.
  Toward Next generation of Brain Computer Interfaces
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Analysing the factors that regulate expression of blood-brain barrier drug transporter proteins
  Dr J L Penny, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to treat diseases associated with the central nervous system (CNS), e.g. cancer, Parkinson’s disease, depression, it is essential for therapeutic drugs to be able to penetrate into the brain.
