    Where does the nervous system come from in the embryo? How does it grow to the right size and shape? How do stem cells turn into more committed neuronal progenitors and how do these cells know when to leave the cycle and differentiate into neural ...
  • William Harrison Dr William Harrison
    We can think of our eyes as though they’re video cameras that record information about the world so that we can better interact with it. However, our visual system outperforms any commercially available video camera. Think about how every movement...

  • Adel Helmy Mr Adel Helmy PhD FRCS (SN)
    My main research interest is in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and in particular the innate inflammatory response following TBI. Inflammation plays a role in secondary injury following TBI, but is also the starting point for reparative processes. I ...
  • Guillaume Hennequin Dr Guillaume Hennequin
    I study the link between physiology and behaviour from a computational viewpoint. I am interested in the dynamics of sensory and motor cortices, and how they support complex computations such as movement generation or perceptual inference. Through...
  • Richard Henson Professor Richard (Rik) Henson
    My primary interest concerns how we remember things. Specifically, I use the techniques of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electro- and magneto- encephalography (EEG/MEG) to examine brain activity as healthy volunteers try to reme...
  • Joe Herbert Professor Joe Herbert
    I am interested in the role of the brain in adaptive responses, with particular reference to the reciprocal interaction between hormones and the brain. My experimental work is focussed on the way that neural factors, such as serotonin and glucocor...
  • Maria  Herva Moyano Dr Maria Herva Moyano E
    I have developed a fast and reliable method to form alpha-synuclein aggregates and my aim is to use it as a high content assay to screen for drugs with anti aggregating properties. I am specially interested in the option of repurposing existing dr...
  • Victoria Hewitt Dr Victoria Hewitt
    I am investigating how interactions between mitochondria and the endoplasmic reticulum contribute to mitochondrial dynamics in neurons. I am using fruit flies as a model system to determine how perturbing these interactions contributes to neurodeg...
  • Frank Hezemans Frank Hezemans
    I study the cognitive and neural mechanisms with which we plan and control action, in health and after the development of dementia. The control of action depends on the integration of predicted consequences of action with sensory information, modu...
