  Understanding the effects of brain disease on what functional brain imaging signals are telling us about neuronal activity
  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.
  Assessing the hemodynamic signal sources of fMRI based spontaneous connectivity maps and how neuronal plasticity such as increased spatial working memory can change these networks
  Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many psychiatric (e.g. schizophrenia) and neurological diseases are characterised by a disturbance of the connections between different parts of the brain that need to communicate with one another.
  The neurophysiological basis of spontaneous fluctuations in neuroimaging signals
  Dr M Jones, Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A technique called blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can determine levels of different activity in parts of the living human brain and how malfunctions can occur in disease.
  Simultaneous measures of brain and blood oxygenation: Revealing the function behind ‘functional’ brain mapping signals
  Dr M Jones, Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A technique called blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can determine levels of different activity in parts of the living human brain and how malfunctions can occur in disease.
  Multimodal understanding of intentional decision in the human brain
  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
  Dr J Zhang
Application Deadline: 10 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our environment constantly demands decisions, and we can intentionally make decisions to fulfill our goals and desires. How does the human brain decide based on intention? What may influence our intentional decisions? This research aims to address to address these long-standing questions in human cognition.
  When do astrocytes contribute to the control of brain blood flow?
  Dr C Howarth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order that the brain can function normally, it is essential that blood flow within the brain is well matched to neuronal metabolic demand.
  Towards a mechanistic understanding of why age increases the behaviorally impairing effects ofinflammation on the brain
  Prof N Harrison
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship offers an outstanding opportunity for a talented PhD student to join an internationally leading group investigating how inflammation in the body acts on the brain to impair human mood, motivation and cognition.
  Psychological intervention, cognitive training, functional rehabilitation and well-being in clinical populations with brain degeneration
  Dr A Ho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The concept of human well-being is a fundamental aspect of our existence and is often particularly vulnerable upon diagnosis and/or progression of long-term neurological conditions for which there is no cure, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease.
  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.
  Motivation, competition, collaboration and goal-setting – How can we improve post-stroke rehabilitation?
  Dr S Dunne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Engaging with brain injury rehabilitation is critical in improving the quality of life and maximising the functional improvements that survivors, such as those post-stroke, can make.
