  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.
  Function Brain imaging in disease: what are the activation maps really telling us?
  Dr C Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Functional brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have already revolutionized how we can study the processes and functioning of the healthy human brain and are making an increasing impact on our understanding on what goes wrong in disease of the brain.
  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.
  Neurotransmitters, brain blood flow and functional brain imaging signals.r
  Dr C Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The function of modulatory neurotransmitter systems such as serotonin, dopamine or acetylcholine are implicated in a wide range of brain diseases and are targeted by a wide range of therapeutic drugs.
  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’).
