  • Dawn Eagle Dr Dawn Eagle
    How does the brain control impulsive and compulsive actions and stop inappropriate or unwanted behaviour? This question is relevant to many illnesses where brain function is altered (e.g,. ADHD, Parkinson's disease, OCD, schizophrenia, compulsive...
  • Steve Edgley Dr Steve Edgley
    I’m interested in how movements are controlled. Our everyday movements are performed with little conscious thought and are remarkably precise. Despite what the textbooks tell you, the way in which this is accomplished is poorly understood. I work ...
  • Dr Simon Edwards
    Alzheimer's Research drug discovery institute.
  • Mike Edwardson Professor Mike Edwardson
    My research involves imaging of biomolecules using atomic force microscopy (AFM). AFM permits the visualization of single molecules under near-physiological conditions. Current projects include studies of: 1. The subunit arrangement in ionotropic...
  • Stephen Eglen Dr Stephen Eglen
    I use computational tools to help investigate mechanisms of neural development. In particular, I study the formation of retinotopic maps and retinal mosaics in vertebrate visual systems. In addition, I am interested in the analysis of large-scale...
  • Michelle Ellefson Dr Michelle Ellefson
    Dr. Ellefson is a senior lecturer in Psychology & Education with the Faculty of Education. Her work integrates cognition, neuroscience, child development, and education into a multi-disciplinary research programme aimed at improving maths and scie...
  • Yaara Erez Dr Yaara Erez
    My work combines a variety of techniques from cognitive and system neuroscience to study the neural mechanisms of information processing and cognitive control. I am interested in multiple aspects that modulate the way we process information such a...
  • Karen Ersche Dr Karen Ersche
    My research focuses on the neuropsychological correlates and neurochemical processes underlying addictive behaviour and the translation of this knowledge into therapeutic interventions. This work involves a combination of approaches including neur...
  • Mark Evans Dr Mark Evans
    My group are interested in (1) how brain detects changes in blood glucose and how this glucose-sensing interacts with peripheral metabolism; (2) how defences against hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) may become abnormal in diabetes; (3) the short an...
  • Barry Everitt FMedSci FRS Professor Barry Everitt Sc.D., F.R.S., F.Med.Sci.
    My research is concerned with the neural and psychological mechanisms underlying learning, memory, motivation and reward especially related to drug addiction. A major research theme is the impact of learning on drug addiction - both its developmen...
