Showing 1 to 10 of 27
  Exploring the pathogenic roles of Rab GTPases in models of taupathy
  Prof F Giorgini, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 28 January 2019
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disorder and the predominant cause of dementia. The main pathological hallmarks of the disease in the brain are the presence of amyloid plaques and neurofibrilliary tangles composed of hyperphosphorylated forms of tau (P-tau).
  Clock gene polymorphisms in Drosophila; natural selection and function
  Prof C P Kyriacou, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The molecular function of circadian clock genes are well understood and conserved from flies to mammals, but the implications of natural variation in clock gene sequences are only recently becoming evident.
  Network interactions shape the circadian clock in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr E Rosato, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The circadian clock is an endogenous mechanism that synchronizes almost all behaviour and physiology with the Earth’s 24 hour environmental cycles.
  Tryptophan metabolism and fruit fly behaviour: implications for psychosis
  Prof F Giorgini, Prof C P Kyriacou, Mr C Breda
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degrades contains several neuroactive metabolites which have been implicated in the pathogenesis of psychotic and neurodegenerative disorders.
  Behavioural and biomechanical analysis of socially induced changes in body and brain structure in desert locusts
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
All animals can tailor their phenotype to the environmental conditions they experience during their lifetime. Such phenotypic plasticity typically entails coordinated changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Cognitive control over feeding behaviour: The impact of prefrontal inputs onto hypothalamic MCH populations
  Dr J Apergis-Schoute, Dr T V Gerdjikov
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is critical for optimising behavioural outcomes by prioritising choices relevant to an animal’s well-being.
  Dynamics of a minimal neuronal network with multisynaptic dendrites
  Dr J Liu, Dr V Marra
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Neurons are morphologically very complex cells with large arborisations that can extend for several millimetres. Communication between neurons relies on action potential driven release of neurotransmitter at specialised sites called synapses.
  eSports: perceptual, cognitive and visuomotor skill development in the digital world
  Dr D Souto, Dr P Duke
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Competitive video-gaming, also known as eSports, is rapidly growing to occupy the role of traditional sporting events. eSports has become a billion-dollar industry, supports professional leagues, has global reach via online tournaments and is being considered for inclusion in the 2024 Paris Olympics.
  Neural mechanisms of memory formation, consolidation and recall
  Prof R Quian Quiroga
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Understanding how the firing of neurons underlies memory functions is one of the most important and challenging goals in neuroscience.
  Regulation of neuronal excitability and synaptic transmission by metabolic demand in health and disease
  Prof I D Forsythe, Dr J Steinert
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The brain uses vast metabolic resources to maintain electrical excitability and to integrate sensory information (Harris et al., 2012).
