  • Camilla d'Angelo Dr Camilla d'Angelo
    I am investigating the neural and neuropharmacological basis of compulsive behaviour in rodents as models of obsessive compulsive disorder.
  • Tim Dalgleish Dr Tim Dalgleish
    I am broadly interested in affective neuroscience in relation to clinical depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I am particularly interested in mental control and emotion regulation in these conditions and the psychological and neu...
  • Jeff Dalley Professor Jeff Dalley
    Primary research interests include behavioural and cognitive neuroscience, psychopharmacology and neuromodulation of limbic cortico-striatal brain circuitry. Specific interests include behavioural and neurobiological endophenotypes and their trans...
  • Tamana Darwish Miss Tamana Darwish
    Nutrients act as signaling molecules in synergy with nervous and hormonal signals to inform the brain about the nutritional status of the body. Impairments of this signalling can result in profound metabolic dysfunction. We explore the central pat...
  • Anthony Davenport Dr Anthony Davenport
    Our research group focuses on understanding the role of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs, targets for about ~50% of current drugs) together with their transmitters in humans. We use in vitro pharmacology and in vivo imaging using positron emissi...
  • Daniel Davies Daniel Davies
    I am studying towards a combined medical degree and PhD (MB/PhD) at the University of Cambridge. I intercalated a BA in Department of Psychology before beginning my doctoral work supervised by Professors Paul Fletcher and Peter Jones. My research ...
  • Emily Davies Emily Davies
    Mechanisms of chronic pain and strategies for analgesia
  • Greg Davis Dr Greg Davis
    Consciousness, 'Free Will' Visual attention, vision, autism
  • Matt Davis Dr Matt Davis
    My work is interdisciplinary, combining diverse methodologies from Cognitive Neuroscience to investigate the neural mechanisms involved in spoken and written language comprehension. I work on a range of topics, including speech perception, lexical...
  • Mario de Bono Dr Mario de Bono
    We seek to understand how neural networks are assembled, function and evolve. C. elegans is a powerful system to study neural circuits. The worm has exactly 302 neurons each of which can be identified. EM reconstructions have identified synapti...
  • Daniel De Haan Dr Daniel De Haan
    I am a postdoctoral research associate in the TWCF Theology, Philosophy of Religion, and the Sciences Project: Neuroscience Strand, Faculty of Divinity, and Translational Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, Department of Psychology, Cambridge Unive...
  • Benedetto De Martino Benedetto De Martino
    My research aims to provide a mechanistic understanding on how the brain constructs the values used to guide choice. I approach this complex problem by combining a number of different theoretical frameworks from economics and computational neurosc...
  • Sanne de Wit Dr Sanne de Wit
    Whilst our actions are often goal-directed, slips of action reveal that automatic, or habitual, mechanisms can take over. Although the concepts of goal-directed action and habits are well-grounded in folk psychology, most empirical research so far...
  • Julia Deakin Dr Julia Deakin
    I plan to experiment with brain imaging techniques and immunomics to look for early changes in psychosis. In particular, I am interested in supporting a recently identified group of patients with psychosis who have autoantibodies to the NMDA recep...
  • Dr Andrew Dean
    I collaborate with members of the Autism Research Centre for the acquisition, dissection and diagnosis of brain from cases of autistic spectrum and related disorders. I have a special interest in neuropathological and radiological characterisation...
  • Natalia del Campo Dr Natalia del Campo
    My research focuses on the optimisation and application of multi-modal neuroimaging techniques to identify the neurobiological mechanisms underlying psychiatric conditions and associated cognitive deficits. One aspect I am particularly interested ...
  • Andrea Delekate Dr Andrea Delekate
    Together with my supervisor Dennis Chan we are interested in the investigation of early symptoms during the development of Alzheimer's disease (AD) in the Entorhinal cortex (EC) and hippocampus. My work will address this question by using an anima...
  • Barry Devereux Dr Barry Devereux
    My research is primarily focused on lexical and semantic processing, the conceptual structure of nouns and verbs, syntactic and semantic ambiguity in language comprehension, and object processing. I am interested in interdisciplinary aspects of l...
  • Dr Martina Di Simplicio
    I am psychiatrist and CBT therapist working in the Emotional Disorders and Mental Imagery group (Holmes). The focus of my research is to investigate how different cognitive styles and emotional responses can play a role in the development of emoti...
  • Anthony Dickinson Professor Anthony Dickinson
    My primary research interests concern learning, memory, motivation, and future planning in both humans and animals. My interest in learning and memory is focussed on the distinction between goal-directed and habitual instrumental behaviour as asse...
  • Kelly  Diederen Dr Kelly Diederen
    My current research focuses on reward learning in healthy individuals and how errors in this system might be related to delusional belief formation.
  • Mr Richard Digby BA
    Under the supervision of Professor Paulsen, my research currently involves the study of Up-sates, a slow oscillation seen in cortical networks. I am investigating the receptor currents that contribute to the maintenance of this activity, and also ...
  • Veronika Dobler Dr Veronika Dobler MRCPsych, PhD
    I am interested in the effect of Early Live Adversity (ELA) on neuro-cognitive development in later life. Psychological theories have long recognized that selective processing and distortions in appraisal of day-to day events as well as cognitive...
  • Christopher Dobson Professor Christopher Dobson
    Our group is investigating the molecular origins of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease, that are characterised neuropathologically by the presence of amyloid fibrils. The aim of our research is to understand ...
  • Michael-John Dolan Michael-John Dolan
    I am interested in understanding the processing, storage and recall of sensory information using simple model organisms. Currently I am studying olfaction using the genetically tractable fruit fly as a model. We are making novel genetic tools to...
  • Joseph Donnelly Dr Joseph Donnelly
    Cerebral autoregulation describes the ability of the brain to keep its blood flow constant across a range of perfusion pressures. Traumatic brain injury is a condition where cerebral autoregulation plays a pivotal role; trauma directly impairs aut...
  • Nick Donnelly Mr Nick Donnelly
    I am interested in understanding how different brain regions, containing different types of neurons, and with different architectures, are able to work together to process information and produce adaptive behaviour. Currently I am investigating t...
  • Jennifer Drobac Dr Jennifer Drobac
    As a U.S. law professor, I examine the neuroscience of decision making, particularly as part of legal consent. My research challenges the legal default of unquestioned human capacity for consent. It posits that legal capacity for consent is not an...
  • Robert Dudas Dr Robert Dudas
    I have carried out research projects on cognitive impairment in the context of progressive-degenerative dementias and affective symptomatology. My current research focuses on the neurobiology of emotional dysregulation and self-harm in the affect...

  • Edward Dyson Mr Edward Dyson BSc MRCS
    The long-term neuropsychological sequelae of diffuse axonal damage from traumatic brain injury can be devastating. This is compounded by the absence of disease modifying treatments. Novel MRI techniques have shown recent promise in further expl...
  • Miss Gintare Karolina Dziugaite
    Research interests include visual perception and imitation learning, especially in motor control. Currently I am working on inverse optimal control and human motor learning by observing optimal behavior.
