Showing 1 to 10 of 15
  Live imaging of neural circuits mediating pain
  Dr A Nikolaev, Dr E Seward
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to characterize the neuronal circuitry involved in pain signaling in genetically modified zebrafish expressing fluorescent reporters of activity.
  LIMB Health: Limb Impedance of Muscle for Better Health
  Dr J Alix, Prof V Kadirkamananthan
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Are you interested in using advanced techniques in signal processing and data analysis to solve reallife clinical problems? Could you work alongside clinicians and engineers in one of the UK’s premier Universities for engineering and neuroscience research, analysing patient data as its collected?.
  Developing a therapy for hearing loss using human pluripotent stem cells
  Prof M Rivolta
Applications accepted all year round
The vast majority of cases of deafness are produced by the irreversible loss of the sensory hair cells and their associated neurons.
  Assessment of excitability of Human pain neurons pain neurons using a novel calcium imaging assay
  Dr M Nassar
Applications accepted all year round
Pain is an important warning system to guard against tissue damage. Pathological pain, however, has no warning value and has huge economical, social and personal costs on society.
  Homeostatic balancing of neuronal excitation and inhibition in vivo
  Dr A Lin
Applications accepted all year round
Neuronal excitation and inhibition are very carefully balanced in the brain, and perturbed excitation/inhibition (E/I) balance has been linked to diseases such as epilepsy, autism and schizophrenia.
  Imaging neurotransmitter release to measure synaptic plasticity underlying associative memory
  Dr A Lin
Applications accepted all year round
How does the brain encode memories? We think learning occurs by changes in the strength of synaptic connections between neurons, but the precise mechanisms by which this synaptic plasticity occurs is often unknown.
  Deciphering Roles of SUMOylation in mini-Human Brains in Health and Disease
  Dr C Guo, Dr S Brown
Applications accepted all year round
Neurodegenerative disorders and cerebral ischemia are incurable conditions, imposing tough medical challenges and a substantial economic burden on health services.
  Molecular dissection of protein palmitoylation in neurons
  Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round
Palmitoylation (S-acylation), the only known reversible lipid modification of proteins, is an important regulator of protein localisation and function.
  Molecular dissection of activity-dependent neuronal signalling pathways using quantitative proteomics
  Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round
Recent proteomic investigations have identified several thousand proteins in biochemically purified synapses and have uncovered multiprotein complexes essential for synapse function.
  Computational modelling of the emergence of somatosensory cortical maps
  Dr H Saal, Dr SP Wilson
Applications accepted all year round
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.
