  • Meng-Chuan Lai Dr Meng-Chuan Lai
    As a clinician scientist, my vision is to bridge and integrate multi-level biological-cognitive-psychological-social research and clinical services. My clinical interests are in the risk and resilience processes across the lifespan in individuals ...
  • Andras Lakatos Dr Andras Lakatos
    Andras’s MRC funded lab focuses on regulators of signaling/transcriptomic networks underlying astrocyte-neuron-synapse interactions in health and in disease. Our specific questions are what cues trigger or maintain the neuroprotective or detriment...
  • Dr Brian Lam
    Functional genomics of the brain control of energy metabolism.
  • Madeline Lancaster Dr Madeline Lancaster
    Human brain development exhibits a number of unique characteristics, such as dramatic size expansion, unique cell types, and distinct neural stem cell behaviors. These characteristics are difficult to examine in model organisms such as mice and ar...
  • Miss Courtney Landers
    Provisionally, the involvement of sexually-selected and species-specific traits in the inheritance of mental illness and behavioural phenotypes
  • Matthias Landgraf Dr Matthias Landgraf
    Development of neural networks - from the morphogenesis of dendritic trees to patterns of connections. As neuronal circuits form, synaptic terminals are delivered to specific regions of the nervous system so that connections can form between appr...
  • Jennifer Landt Jennifer Landt
    I am currently working on a brain imaging project looking at the neuropathological hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease in adults with Down’s syndrome.
  • Claire Lansdall Dr Claire Lansdall
    My research focuses on the cognitive, behavioural and neurobiological changes associated with frontotemporal dementia, progressive supranuclear palsy and corticobasal syndrome. I am particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms underlyin...
  • Amandine Lassalle Dr Amandine Lassalle
    I am interested in emotion and gaze processing in neurotypicals and individuals with ASC.
  • Simon Laughlin Professor Simon Laughlin
    Our group is interested in discovering design principles that govern the structure and function of neurons and neural circuits. We record from well-defined neurons, mainly in flies’ visual systems, to measure the molecular and cellular factors tha...
  • Alexandra Lautarescu Miss Alexandra Lautarescu
    I am interested in the link between Down Syndrome and the high risk of developing Alzheimer's Disease and I am currently conducting an MPhil under the supervision of Prof. Anthony Holland and Dr. Shahid Zaman, as part of the "Defeat dementia in Do...
  • Dr Andrew Lawrence
    I am a psychologist with interests in the application of neuropsychological testing and advanced MRI techniques to understand cognitive function and dysfunction. I am currently investigating cognitive decline and MRI markers of pathology associate...
  • Alpar Lazar Dr Alpar Lazar
    My main research area is sleep, circadian rhythm and cognition in neurodegenerative diseases. My scope is to investigate the deep structure of sleep EEG activity in relation to circadian rhythm, cognition and metabolism and the way it changes ov...
  • Nicolas Le Novere Dr Nicolas Le Novere
    My scientific interests revolve around signal transduction in neurons, ranging from the molecular structure of membrane proteins involved in neurotransmission to modelling signalling pathways. A strong focus is the molecular and cellular basis of ...
  • Michael Lee Dr Michael Lee
    Chronic pain is defined simply as pain that persists beyond 3 months, but in reality is a suffering marked by emotional distress and physical disability. For many patients, the extent of disease or injury does not fully account for the severity of...
  • Brieuc Lehmann
    I am a 2nd-year PhD Student at the Unit, co-supervised by Dr Simon White (MRC BSU) and Professor Rik Henson (MRC CBU). I did my undergraduate in Mathematics here at Cambridge, focusing on statistics during Part III. My PhD project is on statistic...
  • Máté Lengyel Professor Máté Lengyel
    I study learning and memory from computational, algorithmic/representational and neurobiological viewpoints. I also maintain an active interest in the possible computational functions of neural oscillations, particularly those present in the hippo...
  • Victoria Leong Dr Victoria Leong
    I am a developmental cognitive neuroscientist who is interested in the interpersonal neural dynamics of mother-infant interactions. Right now, I am studying the phenomenon of oscillatory coupling or synchronisation between mother and infant brains...
  • Tilman Lesch Tilman Lesch
    My research is focused on human cognition and brain mechanisms relevant for learning and decision-making under uncertainty. I’m interested how personality factors such as impulsiveness or novelty seeking are related to individual’s decision-making...
  • Lu Li Dr Lu Li
    Drug induced neuroadaptation, which underlines the long-lasting changes in brains and behaviour, relies not only on chemical adaptations but also on the morphological alterations of neurons and modifications of synaptic connections. The repeated ...
  • Zhengzheng Sophia Liang Dr Zhengzheng Sophia Liang
    Interested broadly in the molecular basis of behavior, I study how variations in genes and gene expression influence behavioral diversity. I current study the parental-biased control of gene expression in the mammalian brain and its effect on meta...
  • Pietro Lio' Dr Pietro Lio'
    I am a Reader in Computational Biology in the Computer Laboratory which is the department of Computer Science of the University of Cambridge and I am a member of the Artificial Intelligence group of the Computer Laboratory. I hold a PhD in Comple...
  • Danuta Lisiecka Dr Danuta Lisiecka
    I am interested in how MRI techniques can help us understand susceptibility to psychiatric disorders and mechanisms of action of psychiatric treatments. My current research focuses on: A) neural mechanism of action of Minocycline on negative sy...
