    My primary scientific aim is to examine the interaction between peripheral metabolic signaling and neural activity in individuals with healthy and disordered eating behaviors. This work involves measurement of metabolic functioning (e.g., body com...
  • Kirstie Whitaker Dr Kirstie Whitaker
    I am interested in integrating multiple neuroimaging techniques to investigate brain development throughout the lifespan and predict individual differences in cognition, susceptibility to mental health problems, and response to interventions. I am...
  • Alice White Miss Alice White
    Under the supervision of Dr. Caroline Williams-Gray, I investigate immune changes in Parkinson's patients. My project involves the study of T-cell function in a bank of stored blood and immune cell samples, through laboratory techniques such as RN...
  • Dr Matthew White
    Combining cell culture and molecular biology to research ALS motor neuron disease.

  • David Whitebread Dr David Whitebread
    My research focuses on the development of Executive Functioning, metacognition and self-regulation in young children. Neuroscience projects I have supervised have focused on inhibitory control and its relation to metacognition and emotion regulati...
  • Caroline Whiting Dr Caroline Whiting
    My research interests lie in understanding how the language system supports the mapping from visual or spoken input to the level of accessing word meaning, and how this can inform models of language representation in the brain. I am particularly i...
  • Joyce Whittington Dr Joyce Whittington
    Early research on specific learning disabilities - dyslexia - and associated cognitve deficits. For the last 10 years research has focussed on various prevalence, cognitive and behavioural aspects of Prader-Willi syndrome. Most of the latter is d...
