  Computational modelling of the emergence of somatosensory cortical maps
  Dr H Saal, Dr SP Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to to build a computational model of the development of cortical somatotopy in humans, focusing specifically on the representation of the hand.
  Developing a Practice Research Network (PRN) for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) concerning the treatment of Personality Disorder
  Dr S Kellett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) is a brief integrative psychotherapy developed for use in the public sector. CAT is practised around the world and is used primarily to treat complex mental health disorders in Secondary Care settings.
  Efficient coding in touch: Exploring cortical feature tuning in the somatosensory system through the lens of efficient coding
  Dr H Saal, Dr SP Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficient coding models can successfully explain the emergence of different features detectors along the visual pathway, such as center-surround receptive fields, simple and complex cells, and even higher-level visual neurons.
  Exploring appetite control and weight management strategies in individuals from low and high socio-economic status (SES) groups
  Dr N Buckland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individuals from low SES groups are more likely to be obese compared to individuals from higher SES groups. Recent research has shown that low SES groups are more responsive to dietary manipulations that promote increased food intake (e.g.
  Identifying the neural processes underlying skilled anticipation in sport
  Dr R Rowe, Prof E Milne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large body of evidence indicates that skilled sports players can anticipate the actions of their opponents more accurately than novices, for example in sports such as tennis.
  Predictors of sibling violence
  Dr A Debowska
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sibling violence has been documented to be one of the most widespread forms of childhood violence. Research also indicates that experience of sibling victimisation can result in poor mental health, low self-esteem, delinquency, aggression, and substance abuse.
  Responses to threat: what is a normative threat response in development versus a pathological one
  Dr L Levita
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adults and adolescents respond to different kinds of threat differentially, for example in the way they learn to predict danger and learn something is safe via fear conditioning and extinction.
  Sensory processing in Autism Spectrum Conditions and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  Dr P Overton, Dr T Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are prevalent. neurodevelopmental conditions.
  Solidarity in social movements: Antecedents and consequences of high-status groups’ participation in social justice efforts
  Dr A Iyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social movements typically seek to achieve justice or equality for a low-status group (e.g., women or ethnic minorities). Participation in such movements is rarely limited to members of the low-status group.
  The synthetic littermate project: How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain?
  Dr SP Wilson, Prof AJ Prescott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain? To address this question directly, we have been developing a novel robotic technology - the synthetic littermate (or ’surrogate’).
