  Live imaging of neural circuits mediating pain
  Dr A Nikolaev, Dr E Seward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to characterize the neuronal circuitry involved in pain signaling in genetically modified zebrafish expressing fluorescent reporters of activity.
  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’).
  The virtual body schema project: How can body schema be objectively defined and measured?
  Dr SP Wilson, Dr T Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The body schema can be loosely defined as the representation of the body in space, i.e., how you know you can reach the pint at the bar but not the bottle behind it; that you can fit through the door but not the cat-flap; that you must dive to kick a ball or duck to avoid a punch.
  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.
