  Self-organisation as a theory of brain development
  Dr SP Wilson, Dr JV Stone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Self-organisation is a general theory of how function is assigned to cortical microcircuits. The theory predicts that a balance between cooperative and competitive interactions in local cortical circuits, consolidated by Hebbian learning, results in similar inputs being represented by nearby neurons.

  Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus
  Dr M Montemurro, Dr J Gigg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons.
  Face identity recognition: Exploring the role of observer motion and motion of viewed person
  Dr K Lander, Dr P Warren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to identify people around us is crucial to our everyday lives, determining the nature of our social interactions and relationships.
  Infants’ early understanding of word meaning
  Dr A Ferry, Prof A Theakston
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While children begin to say their first words around 12 months of age, there is evidence that they start to understand the meaning of common words much earlier in development, suggesting that infants have already started to build a vocabulary.
  Perceptual stability in Virtual Reality across the adult lifespan
  Dr P Warren, Dr R Champion
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Molecular and genetic mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain changes throughout life. brain plasticity enables the brain to adjust in response to experience, whereas during aging natural neurodegeneration takes over.
  The integration of visually-guided interception with balance
  Dr R Reynolds, Dr S-H Yeo
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of fast interceptive movements is the highlight of human sensorimotor behaviour, whose flexibility and adaptability far surpasses that of any existing robot.
