Modulating brain network activity underlying attention using multi-channel transcranial electric stimulation

PhD (via MPhil) Studentship in Psychology & Computer Science. Reference Number. RS/21/19. Applications are invited for a PhD (via MPhil) studentship within the School of Psychology and Computer Science, based at the Preston (UK) Campus. Read more

What is the contribution of basal ganglia pathology to late-life dementia and frailty?

This project focuses on the role of the basal ganglia in dementia using a cohort of autopsy-derived brain tissue. Most dementia in the population setting is multifactorial and, despite major recent advances, knowledge of the pathological basis of dementia stills remains incomplete. Read more

Task responses in the mouse somatosensory cortex during flexible behaviour

  Research Group: Neuroscience
Background. Mammals have strikingly flexible and adaptable behaviour. When facing new surroundings or a new task, they can extract the situation’s underlying structure (e.g. Read more

Physiological basis linking sleep continuity and age-related cognitive deficits: in vivo manipulation and monitoring of activity of layer 5 neurons in the cortex of mice

  Research Group: Surrey Sleep Research Centre (SSRC)
A good night’s sleep is essential to maintain proper mental health. In particular, consolidated periods of sleep (i.e. sleep continuity) seem to be critical for cognition as reported in humans (Della Monica et al., 2018) and rodents (Rolls et al., 2011). Read more

PhD Studentship Opportunity: Assessing the use of retinal images for the early diagnosis of ageing-associated neurological diseases

Are you interested in AI as well as the brain? Then this interdisciplinary 4-year PhD studentship might be for you. we are looking for a bright and highly motivated student to utilise modern Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms to analyse images of the retina. Read more

PhD Studentship Opportunity: AI-based usage of retinal images with brain imaging for the early diagnosis of ageing-associated neurological diseases

Are you interested in AI as well as the brain? Then this PhD studentship might be of interest. we are looking for a bright and highly motivated student to utilise modern Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms to analyse large amounts of biomedically relevant data to create novel computational models.

PhD Studentship (3 years) In Vivo Diagnosis of Paediatric Brain Tumours using Multi-Modal Clinical MRI and Machine Learning

Applications are invited for a three-year Postgraduate studentship, supported by Help Harry Help Others (HHHO) and the College of Health and Life Sciences, to be undertaken within the Artificial Intelligence in Paediatric Neuroimaging (AIPNI) Research Group at Aston University. Read more

Dissecting the mechanism of pathological aged-related protein aggregation

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Aggregation of aberrant proteins is a hallmark in age-related neurodegenerative diseases. These aggregates cause cell death and tissue degeneration leading to loss of function, hence strategies to reduce aggregation are necessary for delaying disease onset and progression. Read more

How GABA neurones in the DVC control glucose metabolism

The Dorsal Vagal Complex (DVC) of the brain is an important regulator of glucose metabolism and food intake. The Nucleus of the Solitary Tract (NTS) in the DVC senses insulin and triggers a neuronal relay to decrease hepatic glucose production (HPG) in rodents. Read more

Understanding the Impacts of Inhaled Particulate Matter on Neurological Health

The biological processes underlying the development of dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders are complex and not fully understood, but accumulating evidence has demonstrated that exposure to air pollution, especially airborne particles, is a potentially important environmental risk factor.
