  How our emotion affects cognition: From neuroscience, lifespan and psychendocrinological perspectives
  Dr M Sakaki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is no doubt that emotion and stress affect human cognitive processing, such as memory, attention and decision making. However, the exact effects of emotion on cognition are still unclear as emotion sometimes enhances cognitive processing but sometimes impairs cognitive processing.

  Prof D Grace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how machine learning based artificial intelligence strategies can be used to control both the radio resources and network topology in small cell 5G networks, likely to be used in dense urban areas, when traffic is dominated by ultra-high definition video from vehicular users.
