  • Rudolf Cardinal Dr Rudolf Cardinal
    I am interested in computational models of attentional selection and cognition.
  • Bob Carlyon Dr Bob Carlyon
    My research has spanned a wide range of topics in human hearing, but has most recently focused on the problem of how we can listen to one voice in the presence of interfering sounds, such as other speakers. It incorporates behavioural and electrop...
  • Adrian Carpenter Dr Adrian Carpenter
    Our group develops new techniques for the acquisition and analysis of PET and MR images to improve our understanding of the pathophysiology of disease. We also develop novel instrumentation, for example we are an internationally leading centre d...
  • Roger Carpenter Professor Roger Carpenter MA PhD ScD
    I work on the brain mechanisms of human decision. The most common decision we make - two or three times every second - is what to look at next, and the measurement of the time taken to choose to look at a visual target - the saccadic latency - ha...
  • Samuel Chamberlain Dr Samuel Chamberlain MB/BChir PhD MRCPsych
    Neurobiology and treatment of impulsive, compulsive, and behaviourally-addictive disorders. I use a variety of techniques, including cognitive assessment, brain imaging, and pharmacological challenges, to explore the brain underpinnings of these...
  • Dennis Chan Dr Dennis Chan
    My research focuses on detection of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) before symptom onset, and on determining the biological basis of cognitive reserve (CR). AD work centres on detecting alterations in the functions of the entorhinal cortex (EC) and hippo...
  • Lucy Cheke Dr Lucy Cheke
    My research concerns the mechanism by which the brain creates, maintains and manipulates representations of events that are not currently available to perception. These representations can take many forms: they can be memories of veridical past ev...
  • Patrick Chinnery Professor Patrick Chinnery FRCP FMedSci
    I am interested in the genetic basis of neurological disorders, and particularly mitochondrial diseases. Mitochondria are the main source of energy within neurons and glia. Mutations in genes responsible for mitochondrial biogenesis are a major c...
  • Roberto Cipolla Professor Roberto Cipolla
    My research in computational vision includes a number of areas, in particular the recovery of shape, object detection and recognition. My group has developed algorithms for reconstructing three-dimensional shapes of objects from multiple images as...
  • Isabel  Clare Dr Isabel Clare
    I work in the Cambridge Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities Research Group in the Dept. of Psychiatry and as a a senior member of the Enduring Disability and/or Disadvantage clinical theme in the NIHR's CLAHRC East of England. My research in...
  • Dr Hannah Clarke
    Understanding the neural and neurochemical basis of behaviours mediated by the prefrontal cortex and their relevance to psychiatric disorders.
  • Nicky Clayton, Professor Nicky Clayton, FRS
    Nicky studies the development and evolution of cognition in members of the crow family (including jackdaws, rooks and jays) and humans. Her work has challenged many of the common-held assumptions that only humans can plan for the future and remini...
  • Michael Coleman Professor Michael Coleman
    We study axon degeneration and its roles in neurodegenerative disease. One focus is proteins regulating the degeneration of injured axons (‘Wallerian degeneration'), which we have linked into a molecular pathway. Disease models involving similar m...
  • Alasdair Coles Professor Alasdair Coles
    We study people with immunological illnesses of the brain, especially multiple sclerosis. Our most important work to date has been on alemtuzumab (Campath-1H), a humanised monoclonal antibody made originally in Cambridge. We started using it to t...
  • Jonathan Coles Dr Jonathan Coles
    As a clinician specialising within Neurointensive care my research interests are focused on describing the pathophysiology of head injury and optimising patient outcome. Using the combined facilities of the Wolfson Brain Imaging and Neurosciences ...
  • Tony Coll Dr Tony Coll
    My current research continues to focus upon the roles of the hypothalamus in the control of energy balance. Our current understanding of the central control of appetite has relied heavily upon mouse models and I continue to utilise the power of b...
  • William Colledge Professor William Colledge
    My research group is interested in the neuroendocrine regulation of mammalian fertility using transgenic mice as a model system. Puberty and the regulation of mammalian fertility is controlled by hormonal signalling within the hypothalamus. My re...
  • V. Peter Collins Professor V. Peter Collins
    The group is focusing on human brain tumours. The studies aim at documenting the genetic abnormalities involved in the development of these tumours and how these affect cell function. We wish to identify prognostic markers, therapy response marker...
  • Alastair Compston Professor Alastair Compston
    My research interests focus on clinical and experimental demyelinating disease with an emphasis on multiple sclerosis - the commonest potentially disabling disease of young adults. The research group has a broad set of interests: we work on the a...
  • Geoffrey Cook Dr Geoffrey Cook
    My research concerns the mechanisms controlling axon growth. In the laboratory we are investigating two axon-repulsive systems, 1) the characterization of somite glycoproteins that repel axons, creating the segmented pattern of spinal nerves durin...
  • Andrew Crawford Professor Andrew Crawford
    I am interested in biophysics and physiology of the vertebrate inner ear , especially the cochlea. My research has focussed on the electrophysiology of cochlear hair cells with a view to understanding how they manage to respond to nanometre dis...
  • Hannah Critchlow Dr Hannah Critchlow
    Hannah strips down the brain. Using Radio, TV and Festival platforms she designs, produces and presents brainy interactive experiences for the public. She has featured on BBC, Sky and ITV channels and presented live events to over 30, 000 people a...
  • Ian Cross Professor Ian Cross
    My research explores the biological and cultural bases for human musicality, in particular, the mechanisms underlying the capacity for achievement and maintenance of inter-individual synchrony of behaviour, those underlying the experience of meani...
  • Damian Crowther Dr Damian Crowther
    We use a range of in vitro and in vivo techniques to understand how amyloid protein aggregates: i) mediate their toxic effects and ii) underpin the pathological progression of disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. We are investigating the molecul...
  • Marek Czosnyka Professor Marek Czosnyka
    Brain Physics summarizes physical interactions between volumes, flows and pressures in brain. Measurement, data processing and analysis, forecasting and modeling of various cerebral phenomena as autoregulation of CBF or pressure-volume compensatio...
