Showing 1 to 10 of 17
  Phenotyping medication adherence to understand habit formation
  Prof S Walters, Dr M Stevenson
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
We aim to improve existing adherence interventions by analysing the rich data collected in a subset of our cohort with artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to identify people who have formed habit and to study the process of habit formation.
  Telehealth in motor neurone disease: improving access to research and specialist care using innovative digital technologies
  Prof C McDermott, Dr E Hobson
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
This is a fully funded, 42 month EPSRC scholarship based at Sheffield Institute for Translational Neurosciences (SITraN) in collaboration with Institute for in silico medicine (INSIGNEO), two cutting-edge centres for research in motor neurone disease, digital technologies and computational healthcare modelling.
  Advancing personalised care: treatment selection and outcome prediction research
  Dr J Delgadillo, Prof M Barkham
Applications accepted all year round
Personalized medicine, defined as “the use of marker-assisted diagnosis and targeted therapies” (Ginsburg & McCarthy, 2001), has enhanced health and preventive care for conditions such as cardiovascular problems, cancer and osteoporosis.
  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.
  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
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.
  Identifying the neural processes underlying skilled anticipation in sport
  Dr R Rowe, Prof E Milne
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Solidarity in social movements: Antecedents and consequences of high-status groups’ participation in social justice efforts
  Dr A Iyer
Applications accepted all year round
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
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
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.
  Transforming political action intentions into political behaviour
  Dr A Iyer, Dr C Wood
Applications accepted all year round
Social psychologists have long sought to understand the predictors of people’s willingness to participate in collective action and other types of political behaviour.
