    I am interested in finding out how ion channels work, using electron microscopy to analyse their structures trapped in different physiological states. Current research focuses on the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, the transmitter-gated ion chan...
  • Vasja Urbančič Vasja Urbančič
    The growth cones of developing axons are guided on their journey through the developing nervous system by guidance cues that instruct their progression along a precise pathway towards their target area. The responses of growth cones to many of the...
  • Gonzalo P. Urcelay Dr Gonzalo P. Urcelay
    I am interested in learning theories and the neurobiological substrates of acquired behaviour. I am currently conducting studies to assess the involvement of the prefrontal cortex in the transition from goal-directed to habitual behaviours and its...
  • Matilde Vaghi Matilde Vaghi
    I am interested in elucidating the contribution of anxiety and habit formation in the development of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). To further our understanding of the cognitive functions and the neurobiological underpinnings of OCD, I will...
  • Alessio Vagnoni Dr Alessio Vagnoni
    The main goal of my research is to better understand the mechanisms of neuronal ageing in vivo. I am particularly interested in studying how macromolecules, proteins and organelles are trafficked within neuronal axons and how this process is regul...
  • Natalie Valle Guzman Natalie Valle Guzman
    I work at the Brain Repair Centre as a neuropsychologist. I manage the Transeuro trial and assess Parkinson´s and Huntington's diaease patients in clinic with multiple neuropsychological assessments. I am particularly interested in cognitive enha...
  • Ms Vaka Valsdottir
    I am currently working on a project that will use EEG recordings to examine the effect of speaker gaze on infants' statistical language learning.
  • Ms Heleen van 't Spijker
    The aim of my project is the investigation of the role of the neuronal pentraxins in the communication between the perineuronal nets and the synapse.
  • Charlotte van Coeverden Charlotte van Coeverden MSc
    I am interested in how rewards are coded in the brain and how this reflects on social behaviour.
  • Dr Jelle van den Ameele
    I am a neurologist with an interest in developmental neurobiology. I work in the laboratory of Professor Andrea Brand at the Gurdon Institute, where I study development of the Drosophila central nervous system, an established reductionist model of...
  • Ms Mariska van der Hoff M.S.C.
    The influence of conversational therapies in moderately to severe depressed adolescents on relapse
  • Dr Agatha van der Klaauw
    I am currently working with Professor Sadaf Farooqi at the Institute of Metabolic Science. We use a number of genetic approaches, including whole-exome sequencing, to identify novel genes involved in hypothalamic development in patients with sever...
  • Dr Sander van der Linden
    Dr. Sander van der Linden is a University Lecturer in Psychology, Director of the Cambridge Social Decision-Making Lab and a Fellow of Churchill College. His research interests include social perception, normative influence, the “wisdom of crowds”...
  • Miss Aritha van der Stouw A.T.C.
    The influence of Conversational Therapies in moderate to severe depressed adolescents on relapse.
  • Alex van der Wateren Ms Alex van der Wateren MSc
    I am interested in protein misfolding and aggregation, which are molecular processes underlying several neurodegenerative diseases. I study how post-translational modification of protein affects these processes in-vitro. For this, I use bulk kinet...
  • Dr Anne-Laura van Harmelen
    My research aims to understand the differential mechanisms that link negative family environments where children may be emotionally abused and/or neglected (child emotional maltreatment; CEM) with later mental health disorders, or resilience from ...
  • Geertje van Rees Geertje van Rees
    Under the supervision of professor Sabine Bahn, the aim of my PhD project at the University of Cambridge is to identify potential biomarker candidates which can eventually be used for improved diagnosis and potentially improved treatment of schiz...
  • Georgios Varsos Dr Georgios Varsos
    My focus has been on modelling of brain haemodynamics, particularly describing a terminal situation of cerebral circulation, associated with ischemic strokes. A new methodology was created which can be used for estimating brain’s zero-flow pressur...
  • Szilvia Vas Dr Szilvia Vas
    My research interest focuses on the regulation of sleep-wake architecture and brain oscillation in different behavioural states. I joined Professor Jenny Morton's research group in 2015 to study the alterations of sleep-wake pattern and EEG spec...
  • Frantisek Vasa Mr František Váša
    I study development of the brain in adolescence, using whole-brain networks ("macroscopic connectomes") created using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • Deniz Vatansever Deniz Vatansever
    Extensive neuroimaging research has identified a set of brain regions with prominent activity during “no task” baseline conditions, collectively known as the default mode network. The DMN is hypothesized to drive a variety of functions including f...
