Showing 1 to 10 of 12
  Clock gene polymorphisms in Drosophila; natural selection and function
  Prof C P Kyriacou, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The molecular function of circadian clock genes are well understood and conserved from flies to mammals, but the implications of natural variation in clock gene sequences are only recently becoming evident.
  eSports: perceptual, cognitive and visuomotor skill development in the digital world
  Dr D Souto, Dr P Duke
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Competitive video-gaming, also known as eSports, is rapidly growing to occupy the role of traditional sporting events. eSports has become a billion-dollar industry, supports professional leagues, has global reach via online tournaments and is being considered for inclusion in the 2024 Paris Olympics.
  Neural mechanisms of memory formation, consolidation and recall
  Prof R Quian Quiroga
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Understanding how the firing of neurons underlies memory functions is one of the most important and challenging goals in neuroscience.
  Stress mechanisms as modulators of behavioural plasticity in locust swarming behaviour
  Dr S Ott, Dr T Matheson
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
All animals can tailor their morphology, physiology and behaviour (their ’phenotype’) to changing environmental conditions. This phenotypic plasticity entails a reinterpretation of an animal’s genetic information.
  Understanding the role of serotonergic systems in motor control
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Serotonin is a key modulator of locomotor activity in the brain and spinal cord of vertebrates. A wide range pharmacological and lesion studies have provided important information about the role of serotonergic systems in modulation of motor output.
  Behavioural and biomechanical analysis of socially induced changes in body and brain structure in desert locusts
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
All animals can tailor their phenotype to the environmental conditions they experience during their lifetime. Such phenotypic plasticity typically entails coordinated changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Dynamics of a minimal neuronal network with multisynaptic dendrites
  Dr J Liu, Dr V Marra
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Neurons are morphologically very complex cells with large arborisations that can extend for several millimetres. Communication between neurons relies on action potential driven release of neurotransmitter at specialised sites called synapses.
  Reorganisation of cortical microcircuit activity under anaesthesia
  Dr M O Okun, Dr V Marra
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
How does general anaesthesia work? Although general anaesthetics are in use for over 150 years, the outlines of the answer began to emerge only in the last decades.
  Regulation of neuronal excitability and synaptic transmission by metabolic demand in health and disease
  Prof I D Forsythe, Dr J Steinert
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The brain uses vast metabolic resources to maintain electrical excitability and to integrate sensory information (Harris et al., 2012).
  Cognitive control over feeding behaviour: The impact of prefrontal inputs onto hypothalamic MCH populations
  Dr J Apergis-Schoute, Dr T V Gerdjikov
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is critical for optimising behavioural outcomes by prioritising choices relevant to an animal’s well-being.
