  • Sanja Abbott Dr Sanja Abbott
    My main interests are in the development of neuropsychological paradigms for fMRI and new fMRI analysis methods and applications.
  • Miranda L. Abild Miranda L. Abild
    Generally, I study the psychology of human sexuality and gender. I am particularly interested in sexual differentiation, the etiology of sexual orientation, and disorders of sexual development. My current research examines the influence of prenata...
  • Wafa Abutaleb M M
    Stroke is associated with unstable carotid plaque. Hence, the importance of characterizing vulnerable plaques. In my study I am using two novel imaging methods: dynamic contrast MRI and microbubble ultrasound perfusion. Images are to be analysed t...
  • Richard Adams Dr Richard Adams
    My group is interested in the mechanisms of morphogenesis that shape the early central nervous system. Using zebrafish as a developmental model, we image the movements of many hundreds of cells using time-lapse micoscopy. Applying methods of image...
  • Dwaipayan Adhya Mr Dwaipayan Adhya
    Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder. Studies have shown that it affects more males than females. Prenatal exposure to sex steroids, especially, testosterone have been shown to be related to development of autism. Epigenetic changes hav...
  • Fardad  Afshari Dr Fardad Afshari
    I am interested in studying astrocyte biology in the context of gliosis following CNS injury and tumour cell invasion.
  • Franklin  Aigbirhio Dr Franklin Aigbirhio
    Research in the development and application of molecular imaging probes, in particular for the in vivo imaging technique of positron emission tomography. Objectives are to design, develop and apply imaging probes that are specific and selective to...
  • Mike Aitken Dr Mike Aitken
    My research interests include human associative learning, and the role of this learning in intuitive and reflective decision-making systems, including gambling behaviour. Much of my research has involved causal and categorical judgments, with more...
  • Talal Fael Al-Mayhani Dr Talal Al-Mayhani
    Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common type of primary brain malignancies. Patients face dismal prognosis with survival rate of less than 5% at tow years post-diagnosis. The fact that this figure has not changed significantly over the last 2-3 deca...
  • Sian Alexander Dr Sian Alexander DPhil MRCP
    My research interest is cognition and acquired disorders of cognition – memory, language and behaviour. During my DPhil (http://oxion.dpag.ox.ac.uk/) with Angela Vincent and Ole Paulsen, I investigated the aetiology of acquired memory deficits in...
  • Dr Xana Almeida
    During neural development the proper number of each specific cell type must be generated at the correct time and place. Thus, a precise balance between cell division, cell survival, cell cycle exit and differentiation must be achieved. However, th...
  • Dr Johan Alsiö
    My main research interest is the cognitive control over behaviour in health and disease. I am currently studying the neurobiological basis of cognitive flexibility in the intact brain and in preclinical models of schizophrenia.
  • Joao Nuno Alves Joao Nuno Alves
    Chondroitinase is a promising candidate for the treatment of human spinal cord injury (SCI). It is a bacterial enzyme that cleaves glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chains from chondroitin sulphate proteoglycans, which present a major barrier to nerve regen...
  • Jamie Anderson Jamie Anderson BSc (Hons) MA (Urban Design)
    Jamie's is an urban designer based at the Cambridge Well-being Institute and the Department of Architecture. Drawing upon an action-based approach, his research explores relations between the design of the built environment and well-being. Th...
  • Michael Anderson Dr Michael Anderson
    Dr. Anderson focuses on fundamental mechanisms of memory, attention, and cognitive control, and their interaction. A central observation is that memory, like other aspects of cognition and behaviour, poses problems of control. Dr. Anderson uses ...
  • Dr Melissa Andrews
    My research focuses on assessing the localization and transport of ectopically expressed integrins in adult CNS, in order to better target integrins to sites of injury for therapeutic treatment. We have shown that enhancing the regeneration of do...
  • Tiina Annus Tiina Annus
    I am working with Prof Tony Holland and Dr Shahid Zaman on a case-controlled, longitudinal project investigating the role of brain fibrillar beta-amyloid in cognition, cerebral atrophy and Alzheimer's disease in adults with Down Syndrome, using ...
  • Richard Ansorge Dr Richard Ansorge
    My current interests include hardware and software development for various medical imaging modalities, especially PET and MRI. This work is done in close collaboration with the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre. One particular current project is the d...
  • Chrystalina Antoniades
    My work focuses on developing biomarkers for the disorders of Parkinson's and Huntington's. I am using two different approches: saccadic eye movements and metabonomics.
  • Annemieke Apergis-Schoute Dr Annemieke Apergis-Schoute
    I study how humans acquire emotions, in particular fear, and most importantly how to extinguish negative memories or how to have control over negative states. I did my PhD at New York University where I studied with Professor Joseph LeDoux & Profe...
  • Dr John Apergis-Schoute
    The psychological link between appetite and emotions is clear. Often enough food consumption is powerfully influenced by emotional cues that are unrelated to energy requirements. As the amygdala and hypothalamus, two neural regions that code for a...
  • Robert Arnold Mr Robert Arnold
    I work with patients symptomatic of dementia and control subjects in studies based on neuroimaging and cognitive tests. I deal with applications for ethics and other approvals, participant consent, appointments, and administration of neuropsychol...
  • Dr Gonzalo Arrondo
    My research is centered in the study of the relationship between high-order decision making and emotion in neuropsyquiatric patients such as those with depression. For this aim my main tools are functional neuroimaging (specifically fMRI), cogniti...
  • Dr Mercedes Arroyo
    BCNI administrator
  • Duncan  Astle Dr Duncan Astle
    My research uses EEG and MEG with children and adults to explore the neural and cognitive mechanisms of top-down attentional control. In particular, I am interested in how these control mechanisms interact with our ability to store information in ...
  • John Aston Professor John Aston
