  Respiratory control and sensation in neurological patients
  Dr S H Moosavi
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxford Brookes University. Faculty of Health and Life Sciences,. Department of Biomedical and Medical Sciences. 3 Year, full-time PhD studentship.
  Improving the lives of older adults with hearing loss: Developing a self-report measure of effortful listening to guide clinical practice
  Dr A Heinrich, Prof K Munro, Dr R Millman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hearing loss is the most prevalent sensory deficit. In the UK, more than 10 million adults have a hearing loss. Because it is often associated with old age and the size of the older population is growing, it is predicted that there will be more than 14 million people with a hearing loss by 2030.
  Binocular integration of light in amblyopia and autism
  Dr D Baker, Dr A Bruno
Application Deadline: 13 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Position Details. Applications are invited to apply for one Department of Psychology, University of York funded PhD studentship under the supervision of Dr Daniel Baker and Dr Aurelio Bruno.
  Movement-science inspired development of upper-limb prostheses for young children
  Dr S Watt, Dr K Valyear
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project rationale and description. Growing up without a hand poses unique and difficult challenges. Prosthesis provision for infants and young children is extremely limited, and the basic-science principles that inform how children learn to use prosthetic devices are largely unknown.
  Developing a questionnaire to assesses patients’ experiences of audiology services
  Prof K Munro, Prof C Armitage
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing interest in measuring patients’ experiences of clinical services. This can be used to measure quality, evaluate quality improvement initiatives and compare services.
  Individual differences in emotion regulation
  Dr C Van Reekum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individuals vary greatly in how well they can regulate their emotions, and difficulties in emotion regulation have been linked to disorders such as depression.
  Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory
  Dr J Taylor, Dr A Kafkas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’).
  The cognitive Neuroscience of Attention and Working Memory, and Causal Functional Connectivity.
  Dr E Feredoes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab uses cutting-edge combinations of neuroimaging and analytic techniques to investigate aspects of human cognition. Specifically, we’re interested in the following.
  Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease.
  Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr M Collins, Prof S Greenfield
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
  How our emotion affects cognition: From neuroscience, lifespan and psychendocrinological perspectives
  Dr M Sakaki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is no doubt that emotion and stress affect human cognitive processing, such as memory, attention and decision making. However, the exact effects of emotion on cognition are still unclear as emotion sometimes enhances cognitive processing but sometimes impairs cognitive processing.
  Neurological reserve as a pivotal mechanism for psychiatric symptoms in Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof A Venneri, Dr M De Marco
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) may experience and show a whole range of clinical symptoms. Of these, psychiatric symptoms such as apathy, depression and anxiety play a major role in that they are highly debilitating for patients and carers.
  Basic and Applied Motivation science - the function and nature of human motivation
  Dr K Murayama
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD student position on motivation science, a new emerging interdisciplinary area that examines the nature of human motivation.
  Multi-modal neuroimaging of subcortical connectivity in flexible decision-making
  Dr A Christakou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our lab investigates the neurobiological mechanisms that support learning from experience and adjusting subsequent decisions.
  Network-based cognitive training in amnestic mild cognitive impairment: Effect on memory and neuroanatomical variables that influence response to treatment
  Dr M De Marco, Dr D Blackburn
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
