Neurovascular coupling and ageing


Project Description

Neurovascular coupling is the mechanism which links a change in neuronal activity to a local change in blood flow in the brain. This phenomenon ensures that active neurons receive the energy (in the form of glucose and oxygen) that they require to function normally. It is known that during aging brain blood flow responses (e.g. to an increase in CO2) are altered. We will combine measurements of blood flow, neuronal activity and intracellular calcium transients with pharmacological manipulations to investigate what underlies age-related changes in brain blood flow.

Funding Notes

Requirements: We ask for a good honours degree of 2:1 or above and generally a masters or pending masters (merit or distinction) in Psychology or a related discipline.
