  • Susan Gathercole Professor Susan Gathercole
    I am a cognitive psychologist specialising in memory, learning and language. My research is concerned primarily with understanding the cognitive and neural basis of childhood disorders of working memory and other executive functions, and with ide...
  • Zoubin Ghahramani Professor Zoubin Ghahramani
    My current research interests include Bayesian approaches to machine learning, artificial intelligence, statistics, information retrieval, bioinformatics, and computational motor control. Statistics provides the mathematical foundations for handli...
  • Jonathan Gillard Professor Jonathan Gillard
    Development of novel Magnetic Resonance imaging tools assessing atheromatous plaque inflammation and stress analysis. Development of MRI and PET tools for delineating microscopic brain tumour infiltration in man.
  • Dino Giussani Professor Dino Giussani
    We have intertwined our interests in oxygen and the development of the central nervous and cardiovascular systems to propose that oxidative stress underlies the common molecular pathway via which prenatal hypoxia contributes to a developmental ori...
  • Dervila Glynn Dr Dervila Glynn
    Following on from a degree in Biotechnology, I completed a PhD in Pharmacology (Downing College) and worked for 11 years in the field of Huntington’s disease (HD). My research focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration an...
  • Hedwig Gockel Dr Hedwig Gockel
    My research has covered various aspects of human hearing, mostly in healthy individuals. Amongst them are pitch perception, auditory grouping and streaming processes, effects of attention on auditory perception, loudness perception and masking. I...
  • Michel Goedert Dr Michel Goedert
    Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease are characterized by the presence of abnormal filamentous assemblies within some nerve cells. Similar assemblies are found in related disorders, including progressive supranuclear palsy, dementia with Le...
  • Paloma T Gonzalez-Bellido Dr Paloma T Gonzalez-Bellido
    Given a set of environmental conditions and behavioral limitations, what is the optimal neural strategy and performance for a certain visual task? What adaptations are crucial for it? Are such adaptations widely spread across distantly related sp...
  • Ian  Goodyer Professor Ian Goodyer FMedSci
    I am a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist based at Cambridge University pursuing research into the connections between human development and psychopathology. My studies are centred on adolescents in the community as well as current patients. Our re...
  • Usha Goswami Professor Usha Goswami
    I am the Director of the Centre for Neuroscience in Education. The Centre uses EEG and fNIRS to explore the developing brain. Key research projects include the neural basis of developmental dyslexia, the neural basis of speech and language impairm...
  • Fergus Gracey Dr Fergus Gracey
    My research themes relate to assessment, recovery and rehabilitation following brain injury. I am especially interested in identity and emotional adjustment following acquired brain injury, self-regulation, cognitive rehabilitation and service del...
  • Ingo Greger Dr Ingo Greger
    Information transfer in the brain occurs at synapses where chemical transmitters are released from presynaptic terminals and are received by postsynaptic receptors. Glutamate is a major neurotransmitter and glutamate receptors are key to synaptic ...
  • Fiona Gribble Professor Fiona Gribble
    Endocrine communication between the gut and brain, relaying food-related signals that control appetite and metabolism.
  • Jules Griffin Dr Jules Griffin
    We have been using a range of analytical techniques, and in particular NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, to follow metabolism in the brain in a range of disease processes. This ranges from flux measurements to understand the cycling of metab...
  • John Griffiths Professor John Griffiths
    My work involves the use and development of Magnetic Resonance methods for understanding the biology of cancer and the determination of tumour-associated MR parameters for diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of therapy.
  • Mark Gurnell Dr Mark Gurnell
    Current programmes of research: 1. endocrine basis of financial decision-making 2. genetic and acquired disorders of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis 3. novel approaches to sparing hypothalamic-pituitary function in patients with sellar/par...
