  • Tim Dalgleish Dr Tim Dalgleish
    I am broadly interested in affective neuroscience in relation to clinical depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I am particularly interested in mental control and emotion regulation in these conditions and the psychological and neu...
  • Jeff Dalley Professor Jeff Dalley
    Primary research interests include behavioural and cognitive neuroscience, psychopharmacology and neuromodulation of limbic cortico-striatal brain circuitry. Specific interests include behavioural and neurobiological endophenotypes and their trans...
  • Anthony Davenport Dr Anthony Davenport
    Our research group focuses on understanding the role of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs, targets for about ~50% of current drugs) together with their transmitters in humans. We use in vitro pharmacology and in vivo imaging using positron emissi...
  • Greg Davis Dr Greg Davis
    Consciousness, 'Free Will' Visual attention, vision, autism
  • Matt Davis Dr Matt Davis
    My work is interdisciplinary, combining diverse methodologies from Cognitive Neuroscience to investigate the neural mechanisms involved in spoken and written language comprehension. I work on a range of topics, including speech perception, lexical...
  • Mario de Bono Dr Mario de Bono
    We seek to understand how neural networks are assembled, function and evolve. C. elegans is a powerful system to study neural circuits. The worm has exactly 302 neurons each of which can be identified. EM reconstructions have identified synapti...
  • Benedetto De Martino Benedetto De Martino
    My research aims to provide a mechanistic understanding on how the brain constructs the values used to guide choice. I approach this complex problem by combining a number of different theoretical frameworks from economics and computational neurosc...
  • Anthony Dickinson Professor Anthony Dickinson
    My primary research interests concern learning, memory, motivation, and future planning in both humans and animals. My interest in learning and memory is focussed on the distinction between goal-directed and habitual instrumental behaviour as asse...
  • Christopher Dobson Professor Christopher Dobson
    Our group is investigating the molecular origins of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease, that are characterised neuropathologically by the presence of amyloid fibrils. The aim of our research is to understand ...
  • Jennifer Drobac Dr Jennifer Drobac
    As a U.S. law professor, I examine the neuroscience of decision making, particularly as part of legal consent. My research challenges the legal default of unquestioned human capacity for consent. It posits that legal capacity for consent is not an...
  • Robert Dudas Dr Robert Dudas
    I have carried out research projects on cognitive impairment in the context of progressive-degenerative dementias and affective symptomatology. My current interest in dementia spans from risk factors to clinical management. I have also investiga...
  • John Duncan Professor John Duncan
    Brain basis for attention, intelligence and cognitive control; including studies of normal cognition and behaviour, impairments following brain damage, functional brain imaging, and single cell electrophysiology. For John Duncan's popular science...
