  • Evan Reid Dr Evan Reid
    My group's research is focussed on the hereditary spastic paraplegias, genetic conditions where the corticospinal tract axons degenerate. HSPs selectively involve axons while sparing the neuronal cell bodies, so we study them to understand molecul...
  • Frank Reimann Dr Frank Reimann
    Research in the lab is currently focusing on enteroendocrine cells, especially glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) secreting cells, which we hope to target in the treatment of diabetes and obesity. GLP-1 secreting cells are electrically excitable and ...

    My research covers three main areas. My work in epilepsy is largely concerned with studying the management and behavioural correlates of treatment-resistant epilepsy in people with developmental or acquired brain damage. In the field of Autism res...
  • Timothy Rittman Dr Timothy Rittman BMBS BMedSci PgCertMedEd MRCP(London)
    I work with patients suffering from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) and Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD) in collaboration with James Rowe. These are two rare types of dementia with similarities to Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. M...
  • Trevor Robbins Professor Trevor Robbins
    Research interests span the areas of cognitive neuroscience, behavioural neuroscience and psychopharmacology. Main work focuses on the functions of the frontal lobes of the brain and their connections with other regions. These brain systems are re...
  • Angela Roberts Professor Angela Roberts FMedSci
    I am interested in the brain networks underlying cognitive and emotional behaviour. In particular, my research focuses on the executive control functions of the prefrontal cortex and related brain structures, including the basal ganglia and the am...
  • Rhys Roberts Dr Rhys Roberts
    Our group is interested in peripheral nerve diseases, particularly the inherited peripheral neuropathies, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT). We have focused on the demyelinating forms of CMT, where defects in intracellular membrane trafficking p...
  • Hugh Robinson Dr Hugh Robinson
    We study synaptic integration in mammalian cortical neurons - encoding of synaptic inputs into patterns of action potentials, or spikes. We are currently interested in - development of advanced electrical stimulation techniques (conductan...
  • Peter Robinson Professor Peter Robinson
    I am a computer scientist with an interest in neuroscience. My research concerns problems at the boundary between people and computers. This involves investigating new technologies to enhance communication between computers and their users, and...
  • Samuel Rodriques Mr Samuel Rodriques
    When humans anticipate a perturbation to an object that they are holding, they strengthen their grip on the object predictively. We use predictive grip force responses as a way of studying the ability of humans to predict the dynamics of the world...
  • Barry  Rogers Barry Rogers
    I am a social psychologist, a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Institute of Social Psychology (LSE) and an EdD candidate at the Faculty of Education (Cambridge). The core of my time is spent as an educator in a non-traditional setting. I design and...
