  • Dr Benjamin Falcon
    Filamentous protein assemblies in the brain characterize a large number of neurodegenerative diseases, the accumulation and spread of which is believed to underlie nerve cell degeneration. My research focuses on the mechanisms of amplification and...
  • Miss Seyedeh-Rezvan Farahibozorg
    My current research is aimed at characterisation of semantic networks in the brain based on source reconstructed concurrent Electro-/Magnetoencephalography (E/MEG)). Multiple brain areas are thought to play role in semantic cognition. However, th...
  • Sadaf Farooqi Professor Sadaf Farooqi
    Using a candidate gene approach in patients with severe, early onset obesity recruited to the Genetics Of Obesity Study (GOOS), we have identified patients with mutations in genes encoding leptin, the leptin receptor and targets of leptin action ...
  • Giorgio  Favrin Dr Giorgio Favrin
    The focus of my research is to build and analyze the network of pathways associated with Alzheimer’s disease. We are currently measuring these interaction data in the yeast S. cerevisiae (baker’s yeast). We use these data, in conjunction with fr...
  • James Fawcett Professor James Fawcett
    Axon regeneration in the damaged CNS: Regeneration of axons after CNS damage is blocked by several molecules in the environment and by loss of intrinsic regeneration ability, We modify the environment to make it more permissive and modify axonal ...
  • Anne Ferguson-Smith Professor Anne Ferguson-Smith
    Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic mechanism causing genes to be expressed depending on their parental origin. Our research investigates the mechanism and evolution of genomic imprinting and the function of imprinted genes in development and dise...
  • Dr Maria Angeles Fernandez
    My main interest is the study of signalling pathways and molecular mechanisms involved in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease, and its use as a target for the possible therapy of these diseases. Actually, my rese...
  • Emilio  Fernandez-Egea Dr Emilio Fernandez-Egea
    My research interests are mostly the biological and clinical aspects of chronic schizophrenia. I’m the Clozapine Clinic Lead for the local MH Trust (Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust). We study treatment resistant schizophrenia ...
  • Mr Dylan Festa
    Encoding and recall of sequences in biologically realistic and recurrently connected neural circuits.
  • Johanna J. S. Finnemann Johanna J. S. Finnemann
    My primary research interests concern sensorimotor integration and somatosensation which I investigate from a computational as well as experimental point of view. In particular I aim to understand how optimal control, predictive processes, motor l...
  • Paola Finoia Dr Paola Finoia
    My current work combines neurobehavioral observation, fMRI and EEG in patients with Disorders of Consciousness (DoC). In particular, my research investigates which factors might predict patient performance, which technique (or combination of techn...
  • Anthony  Fitzpatrick Dr Anthony Fitzpatrick
    Amyloid is an important class of proteinaceous material because of its close association with protein misfolding disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and type II diabetes. My research focuses on determining the structure, stability and material p...
  • Patrick Flagmeier Mr Patrick Flagmeier
    My main research interests focus on contributing to our understanding of protein misfolding and aggregation associated with neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. One aspect of my work is the development of sma...
  • Sheila Flanagan Dr Sheila Flanagan
    The possibility that shared neural mechanisms for processing language and music exist is an area of increasing interest. Anecdotal evidence that musical exposure or training leads to improvements in literacy and working memory is now gaining supp...
  • Paul Fletcher Professor Paul Fletcher
    I am interested in psychosis. I agree with the long tradition of clinical psychiatric research which suggests that, during a psychotic illness, the world is a strange place because strange associations are formed and inconsequential stimuli are as...
  • Dorothea Floris Dorothea Floris
    I am interested in the neurobiological underpinnings of autism spectrum conditions (ASC) with special focus on cerebral lateralization and functional connectivity. During my PhD I investigated atypical hemispheric specialisation in ASC at differen...
  • Sarah Foerster
    Oligodendrocytes are the myelinating cells of the central nervous system, functioning to accelerate neurotransmission and provide trophic support to the axon. In response to the pathological loss of oligodendrocytes, myelin sheaths can be replaced...
  • Professor Thanasis Fokas PhD-MD
    Analytical algorithms for several medical imaging techniques including PAT, SPECT, MEG, EEG.
  • Elisabeth Fonteneau Dr Elisabeth Fonteneau
    * Psycholinguistics * Auditory perception * Semantic /syntax * Developmental language disorders * Second language learners * EEG/MEG
  • Suzanna Forwood Dr Suzanna Forwood
    My interest is in cortical learning, and particularly the interaction between learning and perception. Previous work has used animal models and computational models to understand cortical function. I am now looking at human models of learning, w...
  • Maxime Fouyssac Mr Maxime Fouyssac
    My research project in David Belin’s lab at the department of Pharmacology and within the BCNI of Cambridge is to characterize the functional contribution of the astrocytes to the development of habitual and compulsive cocaine self-administration ...
  • Polytimi Frangou
    My work focuses on the inhibitory mechanisms involved in visual learning. I am using multimodal imaging to investigate how brain activation modulations are related to neurotransmitter concentrations when plastic changes take place. My main interes...
  • Dr Rene Frank
    I am interested in understanding the native molecular architecture of synapses with a particular focus on postsynaptic membranes that contain N-methyl D-aspartic acid receptors (NMDARs). NMDARs mediate Ca2+-dependent signalling, acting in concer...
  • Dr David Franklin
