Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.

Neural and behavioural correlates of speech production in Parkinson's disease

Speech is a complex task requiring highly coordinated movements of a large group of respiratory, laryngeal and articulatory muscles and involves precise integration with auditory and somatosensory feedback to plan and execute speech movements. Read more

Interbrain dynamical functions for anticipating synchronisation under mutual interactions

How can we communicate with other members of society and synchronise our motion in real-time? Crucial to a sense of communication is the ability to entrain perceptually with other members of society, i.e., to be able to follow and to lead, while maintaining individual autonomy. Read more

FULLY FUNDED PHD: Enhancing human memory formation through learning

TO APPLY, CLICK 'INSTITUTION WEBSITE'. We are seeking a talented, hard working, creative and enthusiastic person for this PhD project, which will provide fundamental insight into human memory, and has the potential to provide novel therapeutic strategies. Read more

State-dependent neural information processing in health and disease

A fully funded PhD studentship is available to work with Dr Shuzo Sakata at University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, UK. This studentship is one of three PhD positions at the newly launched Centre for Doctoral Training in Neurotechnology. Read more

How do prenatal steroids elevate autism likelihood?

The causes of autism remain unknown. Some literature has showed a link between higher levels of steroid hormones such as testosterone in the womb and autism in children, particularly males. Read more

Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory

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’).

Research opportunities in the Department of Psychology

Our Department of Psychology is among the world's top psychology departments*, excelling in both teaching and research. We offer two research degree programmes. Read more

Understanding and control of electric communication in bacteria colonies, using machine learning

Although initial discussions regarding bioelectricity and its role in the fundamental understanding of various cellular behaviours took place in the 1970s, the bioelectrical view of cells as a more general concept has remained limited to the fringes of biological research for five decades.

SELF-FUNDING MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Cellular mechanisms underlying acetylcholine roles in cerebellar dependent behaviours.

The cerebellum is the largest sensorimotor structure in the brain and is crucial for motor coordination and learning. Little is known about how acetylcholine modulates cerebellar circuitry, and until our current work nothing was known about the role of cerebellar acetylcholine receptors in behaviour. Read more

Identifying genomic causes of autism in adults and the impact on day-day life

Autism is a neurodevelopmental condition in which there are combinations of features such as impaired social-emotional reciprocity during interactions and impaired non-verbal communication. The cause of autism is complex, and is thought to be due to combinations of genetic and environmental factors. Most research has focussed on children.
