  The synthetic littermate project: How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain?
  Dr SP Wilson, Prof AJ Prescott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain? To address this question directly, we have been developing a novel robotic technology - the synthetic littermate (or ’surrogate’).
  Self-organisation as a theory of brain development
  Dr SP Wilson, Dr JV Stone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Self-organisation is a general theory of how function is assigned to cortical microcircuits. The theory predicts that a balance between cooperative and competitive interactions in local cortical circuits, consolidated by Hebbian learning, results in similar inputs being represented by nearby neurons.
  Go with your gut, not mine: How does social contact affect individual microbiomes?
  Dr A Bretman, Prof L Collins, Dr X Harrison
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Humans and other animals play host to an array of microorganisms, including bacteria, which inhabit their guts. This microbial community, or “microbiome”, is now known to perform several functions beneficial to host health, rates of ageing, and lifespan (Vaiserman et al 2017).
