    We examine cellular and synaptic properties in neuronal networks using the lamprey spinal cord locomotor network as a model system. While this network is claimed, and often cited, as being characterised, there are actually significant gaps in our ...

    I study language and memory in adults, mainly from the perspective of the patterns of disruption to these cognitive functions that occur as a result of brain damage or disease.
  • Roy Patterson Dr Roy Patterson
    We have developed a computational model of the auditory signal processing that transforms a sound wave into the auditory image you hear in response to that sound wave. We investigate how the cochlea and neural centres in the auditory pathway proce...
  • Alexander Patto Dr Alexander Patto
    SPG11 loss-of-function mutations can cause any of three neurodegenerative diseases, sometimes with different presentations in the same family: a severe form of hereditary spastic paraplegia; a juvenile and slowly progressive ALS; or juvenile Parki...

    Arko is studying dendritic spine plasticity in neurons derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). In the latter he is modelling synaptic development in the autistic brain, with a particular interest in activity dependent dendritic plastic...
  • Ole Paulsen Professor Ole Paulsen
    The primary interest of my group is the relationship between network oscillations and synaptic plasticity. Network oscillations naturally organise spike timing conducive to spike timing-dependent plasticity (STDP), a strong candidate for a mechani...
  • Craig Pearson Mr Craig Pearson
    Influence of extracellular matrix proteins on regeneration of retinal ganglion cell axons in the optic nerve.
  • Roger Pedersen Professor Roger Pedersen
    Our principal objective is to define the molecular and genetic basis for the maintenance of the pluripotent status of human embryonic stem cells, and similarly, the basis for their differentiation into the primary body lineages: mesoderm, endoderm...
  • Polly Peers Dr Polly Peers
    My current work is focused on understanding the relationship between attentional and memory deficits following stroke, and examining whether training of these cognitive functions can improve outcome for patients.
  • Vassilis Pelekanos Dr Vassilis Pelekanos
    My research interests lie in visual and cognitive neuroscience. In particular, I am interested in understanding the brain mechanisms that support our ability to perceive and categorise objects. The volume of solid 3D objects is delimited by surf...
  • Naomi Penfold Naomi Penfold
    I am a PhD student on the Wellcome Trust programme in Metabolic and Cardiovascular Disease. I work at the Institute of Metabolic Science in the lab of Professor Sue Ozanne. We are interested in how the early life environment (pre- and postnatal) c...

    Spatial statistics and morphometry analyses of Magnetic Resonance brain images. Current main focus is on enhancements and extensions to the standard Voxel Based Morphometry (VBM) method, mostly through the improvement of the registration step and ...
  • Dr Nicholas Perentos
    In neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington's disease neuronal networks undergo dramatic changes. Understanding these changes at early stages of the disease may provide opportunities for therapeutic targets. I use behavior with concurrent ele...
  • Jesus Perez Professor Jesus Perez
