  • David Parker Dr David Parker
    We examine cellular and synaptic properties in neuronal networks using the lamprey spinal cord locomotor network as a model system. While this network is claimed, and often cited, as being characterised, there are actually significant gaps in our ...
  • Roy Patterson Dr Roy Patterson
    We have developed a computational model of the auditory signal processing that transforms a sound wave into the auditory image you hear in response to that sound wave. We investigate how the cochlea and neural centres in the auditory pathway proce...
  • Ole Paulsen Professor Ole Paulsen
    The primary interest of my group is the relationship between network oscillations and synaptic plasticity. Network oscillations naturally organise spike timing conducive to spike timing-dependent plasticity (STDP), a strong candidate for a mechani...
  • Roger Pedersen Professor Roger Pedersen
    Our principal objective is to define the molecular and genetic basis for the maintenance of the pluripotent status of human embryonic stem cells, and similarly, the basis for their differentiation into the primary body lineages: mesoderm, endoderm...
  • Jesus Perez Professor Jesus Perez
    My research activity is mainly focused on early detection and intervention in psychosis and the history of psychiatry. I am particularly interested in the epidemiological apects of young people at high-risk of developing psychosis and with first-e...
  • Anna Philpott Professor Anna Philpott
    Our laboratory is interested in understanding the coordination of cell proliferation with cell fate determination and differentiation in development, stem cells and reprogramming, focusing particularly on the nervous system (as well as in endocri...
  • John Pickard Professor John Pickard
    Advancing the care of patients with acute brain injury (trauma, haemorrhage and hydrocephalus) from initial ictus, neurointensive care, recovery from coma and rehabilitation to final outcome through the study of pathophysiology (multimodality beds...
  • Kate Plaisted Dr Kate Plaisted-Grant
    My research interest in autism was sparked by the fascinating cognitive strengths shown by many individuals with autism. These include exceptional abilities to process fine details, better discrimination abilities compared to typical individuals a...
  • Stefano Pluchino Dr Stefano Pluchino
    Recent evidence from our own laboratory indicates that the systemic injection of somatic neural stem/precursor cells (NPCs) very efficiently protect the CNS from the chronic degeneration induced by inflammation both in small rodents as well as in ...
  • Brechtje Post Dr Brechtje Post
    My research primarily focuses on speech prosody - intonation, accentuation, rhythm, and phrasing. Prosody simultaneously encodes information from different components of the linguistic system in the speech signal, in particular morpho-syntax, prag...
  • Stephen Price Mr Stephen Price
    My group uses advanced multimodal MR and PET imaging to understand the heterogeneity of gliomas (high and low grade) in individual patients. We know that gliomas are among the most heterogeneous tumours but still do not have a method of detecting ...
