  • Belgin Yalcin Dr Belgin Yalcin
    Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) forms a continuous network from the neuronal cell body, all the way to synaptic terminals. The formation and function of this elaborate structure of ER are not well understood. Importantly, the form of ER is highly relev...

    I study Bayesian active sensing in sensorimotor control. Up until now the field has focused primarily on visual search tasks. I aim to go beyond the conventional and explore active sensing in more complex scenarios both experimentally and theore...
  • Giles Yeo Dr Giles Yeo
    I study brain control of body-weight, and currently have two main aims: 1.) To determine a role for FTO in energy balance. SNPs in FTO are strongly associated with obesity. FTO is nutritionally regulated within the ARC, and modulating FTO expres...
  • Shel Hwa Yeo Dr Shel Hwa Yeo
    My research interest is the kisspeptin neuronal network in the adult mouse brain. Kisspeptin neuropeptides are the potent stimulators of the gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons that govern the reproductive functions in mammals. My curre...

    Computational cognitive neuroscience.
  • Steve Young Professor Steve Young
    My primary interest is in adaptive learning in spoken dialogue systems. This currently involves modelling human machine dialogues using the framework of Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes (POMDPs). The research issues addressed incl...
  • Dr Rolf Ypma
    I work on graph theoretical analysis and statistical reconstruction of brain networks, using rsfMRI data on humans and viral tracer studies in mice. I am further interested in relating these abstract global networks to local neurobiological proper...
  • Temur Yunusov Dr Temur Yunusov
    Locomotion in Drosophila melanogaster larva requires coordinated output of motorneurons that drive the contractions of the body wall muscles. The dendrites of motorneurons in the Ventral Nerve Cord are oganised to form a 'myotopic' representation ...
