Self-Funded PhD Opportunities

The School of Psychology & Neuroscience strives to understand the brain at multiple levels of function, from cells to cognition. Our approaches range from molecular, cellular and systems level investigations to the brain imaging of human behaviour and cognition. We specialise in investigating cell signalling, stem cells, brain imaging and formal modelling, with focus on the dynamics of information processing in cortical networks. We aim to understand brain networks at multiple levels of function, from cells to cognition, using approaches ranging from molecular, cellular, systems and social level investigations, with a strong emphasis on imaging and computational analyses of each level.

Spinal cord neuronal pathways for pain and itch
This project will aim to identify distinct functional populations among dorsal horn neurons and to define their roles in synaptic circuits that are responsible for the perception of pain and itch.

Towards restoring memory dysfunction in prodromal Alzheimer’s Disease.
This project aims to characterise cellular/circuit level dysfunction of genetically identified inhibitory neurons in the retrosplenial cortex in mouse models of dementia; link cellular/circuit level dysfunction to dementia-related behavioural phenotypes; develop and test rescue strategies for dementia-related behavioural phenotypes.

Synaptic circuitry of the spinal dorsal horn: unmasking the cellular basis of chronic pain
This project will aim to identify spinal circuits implicated in the development of chronic pain from the skin, from joints and from internal organs.
