Showing 1 to 10 of 21
  Developing a questionnaire to assesses patients’ experiences of audiology services
  Prof K Munro, Prof C Armitage
Applications accepted all year round
There is growing interest in measuring patients’ experiences of clinical services. This can be used to measure quality, evaluate quality improvement initiatives and compare services.
  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.
  Working to identify support needs for staff working within prison environments.
  Prof J Shaw, Dr A Shepherd
Applications accepted all year round
Prisons represent intense sites of mental distress and suffering. Epidemiological studies demonstrate consistently high rates of mental disorder amongst prisoners globally.
  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.
  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.
  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’).
  Computing beyond a million processors - bio-inspired massively parallel architectures.
  Dr J Garside, Prof S Furber, Dr D Lester
Applications accepted all year round
The SpiNNaker project aims to deliver a computing system that incorporates a million embedded ARM processors with the objective of supporting simulations of very large-scale systems of spiking neurons in real time.
  Machine Learning and Cognitive Modelling Applied to Video Games
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round
Video games have been viewed as an ideal test bed for the study of AI. However, most of the academic work in this area focused on traditional board and card games where limited AI techniques have been tested.
  Predictive motor control in autism: establishing whether movement difficulties are caused by problems with prediction
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff, Dr S Baines
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long condition affecting communication and social interactions. ~70% of autistic individuals also have movement difficulties such as poor eye-hand coordination and unstable balance.
  Characterising motor impairments in autism using computational techniques
  Dr E Gowen, 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.
