Showing 1 to 10 of 40
  Investigating the incidence of falls and relationship to motor ability in autistic adults
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Stanmore, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people. In addition to these social symptoms, >70% of autistic individuals show signs of altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination, unstable balance and abnormal gait patterns.
  (WIS) Neural Computation by the Dynamics of Neural Populations
  Dr R Petersen, Dr I Schiessl
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Each human brain has 10 times more neurons than there are human beings on our planet. The collective activity of large groups of numbers is known to be critical for how we perceive, act, think and feel.
  Perceptual stability in Virtual Reality across the adult lifespan
  Dr P Warren, Dr R Champion
Applications accepted all year round
When we move, stationary parts of the world around us move on the retina. Of course, usually we correctly interpret this retinal motion as due to our own movement and not movement of the surrounding environment.
  Using biomaterials and 3D bioprinting to model the neurovascular unit in dementia
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round
Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, cerebrovasculature and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  Feasibility of delivering group psychological support to stroke survivors in community settings
  Dr E Patchwood, Prof A Bowen, Dr S Knowles
Applications accepted all year round
Supporting people to come to terms with persisting disability and life after stroke is a high priority for stroke research. There is an urgent need for evidence-based, clinically and financially effective psychological interventions that can be feasibly delivered for community-based stroke survivors.
  Linear Poisson Modelling Independent Component Analysis of DESI Mass Spectral Tissue Images
  Dr A McMahon, Dr N Thacker
Applications accepted all year round
Desorption Electrospray Ionisation - Mass Spectrometry Imaging (DESI – IMS) allows mass spectra to be acquired from an. array of.
  Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory
  Dr J Taylor, Dr D Talmi
Applications accepted all year round
This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’).
  Inflammation, the immune system and neurological disease
  Prof S Allan
Applications accepted all year round
Inflammation is now recognised as a key contributor to neuronal injury in both acute and chronic neurodegenerative disease. Many studies in this area have focussed on the post-injury inflammatory response and in particular on the role of specific cytokines in the central nervous system.
  Investigating the link between amyloid-β oligomers, neuroinflammation and cognitive deficits in preclinical models for Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr M Harte, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round
Currently four out of the five pharmacological treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors aimed at boosting the amount of acetylcholine in the brain, with the fifth being an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist.
  The interaction of performance and learning in action selection
  Dr M Humphries
Applications accepted all year round
Reinforcement learning models of behaviour separate the learning and performance of actions. In these models, appropriate actions are learnt by prediction error feedback from their consequences.
