  • Stacey Jackson Ms Stacey Jackson
    I am interested in the neural basis of types of learning that are implicated in OCD. I particularly focus on the OFC, striatum and amygdala and their modulation by serotonin and dopamine.
  • Tony Jackson Dr Tony Jackson
    In neurones, voltage-gated sodium (Nav) channels initiate the action potential. Sodium channels consist of a ~ 250 kDa alpha-subunit and ~40 kDa beta-subunits. The beta-subunits modulate channel gating. The Nav beta-subunits possess an extracellul...
  • Sridhar rajan Jagannathan Sridhar rajan Jagannathan
    At the heart of my science, I aim to understand the mysterious phenomenon of consciousness. My research involves manipulating one of the dimensions of consciousness (arousal level) either in a natural sleep-awake process or through sedation. The...
  • Ibrahim Jalloh Dr Ibrahim Jalloh
    Which fuels are best for the injured brain? Ibrahim's research, supported by the MRC, aims to explore several aspects of energy metabolism in the normal and injured human brain.
  • Dr Ella James
    I am a post-doctoral scientist working at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in the Emotional Disorders and Mental Imagery group (PI: Emily Holmes). My research is on psychological trauma and involuntary mental images with a focus on develo...
  • Tun Jao Dr Tun Jao
    I am a neurologist with clinical interests in acute stroke and epilepsy management. After receiving a Masters degree in Biomedical Electronics and Bioinformatics in 2010, I started to do my PhD with Prof Ed Bullmore, and my focus is to explore neu...
  • Mr Przemyslaw Jarzebowski
    I look at the development of cortical cultures and use a comparative approach to quantitatively characterise differences in neural activity between healthy and diseased cultures. In my research project I study activity in a culture with a mutation...
  • Gregory Jefferis Dr Gregory Jefferis
    Our broad goal is to understand how smell turns into behaviour in the fruit fly brain. We use a combination of genetic labelling and manipulation, targeted in vivo whole cell patch clamp recording and high resolution neuroanatomy to study olfactor...
  • Sally Jennings Sally Jennings
    I am based at the Cambridge Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Group as part of the Department of Psychiatry. I have been awarded a PhD Studentship by the MRC to investigate EEG aspects of typical and pathological aging in adults...
  • Dr Maria Jimenez-Sanchez
    I am interested in the study of neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington´s disease that are associated with the formation of intracellular protein aggregates. My research focuses on exploring the molecular mechanisms that cells employ to pr...
  • Dr Alexis Joannides
    We have established a scaleable and clinically compatible system for generating and propagating neural stem cells from human embryonic stem (ES) cells. Using this platform, and building on our work on mouse ES cells demonstrating a correlation of ...
  • Joanne Jones Dr Joanne Jones
    We study human autoimmunity; in particular we aim to understand why autoimmunity often occurs during recovery from T cell lymphopenia. People with multiple sclerosis, treated with the highly effective lymphocyte depleting antibody alemtuzumab off...
  • Peter Jones Professor Peter Jones
    The Cambridge “epiCentre” group works at the interface between population-based research, neuroscience and clinical psychiatry in order to understand the causes, mechanisms and treatments for psychosis (particularly schizophrenia) dementia, depres...
  • Dr Phil Jones
    We are investigating how normal stem cells transform into cancer cells in a range of sytems, both by studying stem and progenitor cell fate and also by investigating the role of a specific cell fate regulators. Our focus has been on Hes6, which r...
  • Simon Jones Mr Simon Jones
    Imaging analysis and study design in Dr James Rowe's Group. Mainly looking at impulsivity in Parkinson's disease, stroke and dementia using structutral MR, PET and fMRI.
  • Susan Jones Dr Susan Jones
    The primary focus of our research is the function of AMPA and NMDA glutamate receptors at excitatory synapses in the brain. We study the properties of glutamate receptors, glutamatergic synaptic transmission, and synaptic plasticity. We are intere...
  • Rosie JonesJennings
    I am studying the creation of empathetic narratives within British Horsemanship. I am interested in how an 'other's' thoughts and feelings are comprehended and experienced in the human brain, how empathy is learned, contextual and partial.
  • Kamila Jozwik Dr Kamila Jozwik
    Object recognition Scene recognition Face recognition Species relationship (monkey, human) Autism Sensory and semantic representations Cross modality representations Space and time representations (fMRI, MEG, EEG) Computational modelling Deep neur...
  • Dr Bianca Jupp
    My research primarily concerns investigating the neurobiology underlying the behavioural trait of impulsivity and related cognitive endophenotypes and how these confer risk for developing drug abuse and addiction. I am particularly interested in t...
  • Miss Alanna Just
    My research aims to identify endophenotypes in the brains of addicted individuals.
