  Combining different neurosciences and experimental economics methods for investigating consumers’ preferences and willingness to pay for new controversial food technologies.
  Dr D Asioli
Applications accepted all year round
A large number of studies have attempted to investigate consumers’ preferences for new food products produced using new controversial food technologies (e.g.
  Bioengineering stem cells for neuroprotection against stroke
  Dr N Vasudevan, Dr E Delivopoulos, Prof S Nasuto
Applications accepted all year round
"Stroke, in particular ischaemic stroke, is the third major cause of death worldwide and there is significant health impairment in survivors.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round
Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  Fractional order modelling of neurons
  Dr S Hadjiloucas, Dr E Delivopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Fractional order calculus (integro-differential equations that are of non-integral order) is an emerging methodology with wide applications across all areas of Physics and Engineering.
  Gene and Cell Therapy For Muscular Dystrophy, Muscular Atrophy, Diabetes and Metabolic conditions
  Dr K Foster
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle development is a complex process and a number of regulatory factors for the different steps involved in stem cell activation and proliferation through to multinucleated, post-mitotic cells have been identified.
  How do hormones improve learning and memory?
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Applications accepted all year round
"Deficiencies of thyroid hormone, in particular subclinical hypothyroidism is common throughout the globe. Adult-onset hypothyroidism affects around 8-10% of the population and has been associated with reproductive disorders, anxiety, depression and impairment of memory.
  How do prenatal steroids elevate autism risk?
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round
"Autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a devastating disorder that affects 1% of the population and is the most costly condition in the UK.
  Impact of maternal obesity on offspring adipogenesis
  Dr D Sellayah
Applications accepted all year round
Obesity is the major health crisis of this generation. Thus, research into the mechanistic basis behind obesity is of paramount importance.
  Understanding signalling by a novel hormone receptor in the brain
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round
Our laboratory is interested in how hormones, in particular oestrogen, signal and how this signal drives social behaviours in animals.
  Unravelling EEG brain signals
  Prof Y Zheng
Applications accepted all year round
"Electroencephalography (EEG) is widely used to record brain activity non-invasively. With recent advances in computer hardware and processor technology, it has been increasingly used in brain-computer interface (BCI) devices in many fields including assistive technology, neuro-marketing and gaming.
