  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr R Swidbert
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most animal movements are driven by muscle contractions controlled by the nervous system, but there is now considerable evidence that passive forces, originating in muscles, tendons or other tissues, interact with active forces to generate limb movements in both vertebrates and invertebrates (Page et al.
  Developmental Responses to Environmental Change
  Dr C Mirth
Applications accepted all year round

PhD Type

The environment in which animals develop profoundly shapes their morphology and behaviour, a process known as phenotypic plasticity.
  Structural plasticity and regeneration in the Drosophila brain.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain is plastic. neurons and glia make adjustments in cell size and shape (dendrites, axons), in synapses, and in cell number, throughout life.
