  • Roger Hardie Professor Roger Hardie
    Phototransduction, TRP channels and Calcium signalling in Drosophila Phototransduction in the fruitfly Drosophila is an important model for G-protein coupled signalling and fascinating in its own right. We study the underlying cellular and molecu...
  • William Harris Professor William Harris
    Where does the nervous system come from in the embryo? How does it grow to the right size and shape? How do stem cells turn into more committed neuronal progenitors and how do these cells know when to leave the cycle and differentiate into neural ...
  • Michael Hastings FMedSci Dr Michael Hastings FRS, FMedSci
    Cellular and molecular basis to circadian rhythms in mammals and its relevance to metabolic and neurological disease.
  • Olaf Hauk Dr Olaf Hauk
    I use a multi-modal imaging approach to problems in the neuroscience of language and cognition. Reading: How are the complex computations underlying reading behaviour implemented so efficiently and flexibly in our brains? I address this question ...
  • Sarah Hawkins Professor Sarah Hawkins
    Trained as a psychologist and acoustic phonetician, I have worked mainly on speech perception, including a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship on acoustic-phonetic contributions to a biologically-plausible theory of how speech is understood. From...
  • Berthold Hedwig Dr Berthold Hedwig
    I analyse the neural mechanisms underlying acoustic communication in insects which use species-specific sounds for mate attraction. I use behavioural, neurophysiological and optical imaging techniques with the aim to understand: 1. The neural mech...
  • Adel Helmy Mr Adel Helmy PhD FRCS (SN)
    My main research interest is in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and in particular the innate inflammatory response following TBI. Inflammation plays a role in secondary injury following TBI, but is also the starting point for reparative processes. I ...
  • Guillaume Hennequin Dr Guillaume Hennequin
    I study the link between physiology and behaviour from a computational viewpoint. I am interested in the dynamics of sensory and motor cortices, and how they support complex computations such as movement generation or perceptual inference. Through...
  • Richard Henson Professor Richard (Rik) Henson
    My primary interest concerns how we remember things. Specifically, I use the techniques of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electro- and magneto- encephalography (EEG/MEG) to examine brain activity as healthy volunteers try to reme...
  • Joe Herbert Professor Joe Herbert
    I am interested in the role of the brain in adaptive responses, with particular reference to the reciprocal interaction between hormones and the brain. My experimental work is focussed on the way that neural factors, such as serotonin and glucocor...
  • Melissa Hines Professor Melissa Hines
    I study gender development, and am particularly interested in how prenatal influences (e.g., gonadal hormones) interact with postnatal experience to shape brain development and behaviour. My current research programme includes studies of individu...
  • Sean Holden Dr Sean Holden
    Our research covers assorted issues in both theoretical and applied machine learning. At present we are interested in: - Computational learning theory. How can we better understand the properties of machine learning algorithms in terms of, for ex...
  • Tony Holland Professor Tony Holland
    The focus of our interdisciplinary research is on learning disabilities (intellectual disabilities/mental handicap) from different perspectives. Research to date has had the following main themes. First, the relationship between specific genetical...
  • Emily Holmes Professor Emily Holmes
    In the Emotional Disorders and Mental Imagery programme we investigate three areas: Psychological trauma Depressed mood Bipolar disorder
  • Dr Joni Holmes
    I am interested in the overlap between working memory, attention and executive function processes in children and adults. My research has focussed on the role of working memory in children's mathematical skills, and on understanding the cognitive ...
  • Christine Holt Professor Christine Holt FMedSci FRS
    My laboratory studies how nerve connections are first established in the brain. We focus on the developing visual system and our main goal is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms of axon guidance that enable axons to navigate from t...
  • Ayla Humphrey Dr Ayla Humphrey
    I am interested in developing services for children & families. Co-founder of first UK holistic neuropsychological service for children with brain injury (CCPNR,Cambridge Centre for Paediatric Neuropsychological Rehabilitation);Cambridgeshire Chil...
  • Peter Hutchinson Professor Peter Hutchinson
    I am a NIHR Research Professor at the Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Cambridge and Honorary Consultant Neurosurgeon at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. I have a general neurosurgical practice with a subspecialist interest in...
