  The effects of cannabinoids on pre- and post-synaptic activity during learning
  Prof N Hartell, Dr M Hamann
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

General Background. Learning and adaptation of behaviour requires long-term changes in the strength of synaptic transmission that in turn lead to alterations in the patterns of neuronal firing.
  Understanding microtubule-actin crosstalk in neuronal cell migration
  Prof A M Fry, Prof I D Forsythe
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This BBSRC-funded 4-year PhD studentship will address the mechanism of action of a microtubule-associated protein, EML4, in promoting microtubule-actin crosstalk and neuronal cell migration [1].
  Evaluating motor and cognitive function through gaze-control technology
  Dr D Souto
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gaze-control technology has proved invaluable in assisting people with neurodegenerative conditions, such as Motor Neuron Disease (MND) or Cerebral Palsy (CP), at times dramatically improving their quality of life by extending their ability to communicate independently.
  Cerebellar control of aggression
  Dr W NORTON, Dr J McDearmid
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our laboratory investigates the genes and neural circuits that control aggression, an adaptive behaviour that animals use to establish social hierarchies and fight for resources such as food or territory.
  An integrated approach to understanding effects of Candida albicans on cerebral functions
  Dr M Hamann, Prof N Hartell
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Candida albicans is a common member of the human gut flora detected in the gastrointestinal tract and mouth in 40–60% of healthy adults.
  Towards a functional model for associate learning and memory formation
  Dr J Liu, Prof R Quian Quiroga
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to study the most up-to-date experimental data regarding single-neuron and network learning and coding in humans, with the expectation that a functional model could be established thereon.
  Behavioural, tomographic and biomechanical analysis of socially induced changes in body and brain structure in desert locusts
  Dr S Ott, Dr T Matheson, Prof J Pan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All animals can tailor their phenotype to the environmental conditions they experience during their lifetime. Such phenotypic plasticity typically entails concerted changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Neuronal coupling across spatiotemporal scales and dimensions of cortical population activity
  Dr M Okun, Dr J Liu
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human cortex is the most complex known system. It is responsible for a vast range of sensorimotor, decision making, and other cognitive abilities of humans and other mammals.
  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr R Swidbert
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most animal movements are driven by muscle contractions controlled by the nervous system, but there is now considerable evidence that passive forces, originating in muscles, tendons or other tissues, interact with active forces to generate limb movements in both vertebrates and invertebrates (Page et al.
  The evolution of the neurogenic gene regulatory networks in Bilateria
  Dr R FEUDA, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution of the nervous system is one of the most important innovations in the evolutionary history of animals. Because neurons are present in deuterostome (e.g.
  Decoding movement kinematics from subpopulations of motor cortex neurons
  Dr T V Gerdjikov, Dr J Liu
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Fine motor control involves the ability to reach, grasp and release objects. It is a fundamental aspect of motor behaviour essential for feeding, self-care and the manipulation of tools.
  Role of the microbiome in neurodegenerative disease
  Prof J Ketley, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human microbiome is essential for human health as it is crucial for the development of immunity, tissue development, host metabolism and protection from various infectious diseases.
  Human Brain Project (HBP) - PhD Scholarship

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD opportunity is available with the EU Future and Emerging Technologies Flagship Human Brain Project (HBP).
  Controlling the emergent dynamical phenomena in neural circuits engineered in vitro
  Dr N Janson, Dr A Balanov, Dr P Roach
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be dedicated to mathematical modelling of the collective dynamics in complex living neural networks engineered in vitro.
