  • Clemens Kaminski Professor Clemens Kaminski
    We develop advanced microscopic imaging techniques that permit us to elucidate molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration. We use techniques such as lifetime, spectrum and polarisation resolved imaging that inform on protein misfolding, aggregat...
  • Ragnhildur Thora Karadottir Dr Ragnhildur Thora Karadottir
    My lab’s interests are neurotransmitter signalling to oligodendrocytes and their progenitor cells, in both health and disease. Oligodendrocytes produce myelin (in the CNS), which speeds the propagation of the action potential. When the myelin s...
  • Napoleon  Katsos Dr Napoleon Katsos
    I am interested in how developmental research can inform theoretical linguistic inquiry and vice versa. My particular focus is in the area of semantics and pragmatics, and in language learning by monolingual and bilingual children as well as child...
  • Barry Keverne Professor Barry Keverne
    Professor Keverne has long standing experience in behavioural neuroscience and has, in the past 10 years, brought molecular genetic techniques to focus on brain development and investigate how genetic perturbations of the brain influence brain fun...
  • Roger Keynes Professor Roger Keynes
    Growth cone repulsion is an important mechanism controlling axon growth. During development it guides axons by excluding them from repulsive regions of the embryo. Following injury to the adult brain it may also block axon regeneration, with major...
  • Golam Khandaker Dr Golam Khandaker
    Working at the interface between immunology and psychiatry, my research examines novel immunological mechanism and treatment for major psychiatric disorders such as depression and schizophrenia using epidemiological, genetic and treatment studies....
  • Rogier Kievit Dr Rogier Kievit
    My research focuses on using psychometric models to understand neurodevelopmental changes in executive functions. These cognitive abilities, such as reasoning, problem solving and goal management, develop rapidly during adolescence and often show ...
  • James Kirkbride Dr James Kirkbride Ph.D.
    Please note, from 1 January 2014 I will relocate to UCL, Division of Psychiatry. I will continue to collaborate with the Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge, on the SEPEA and EU-GEI studies. I am a psychiatric epidemiologist intere...
  • Professor David Klenerman
    Small soluble protein aggregates are thought to play a key role in the initial development of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, but are difficult to study using conventional methods due to their low concent...
  • Tuomas Knowles Professor Tuomas Knowles
    We work on the physico-chemical properties and behaviour of biological molecules and soft materials. The research in the group is highly interdisciplinary. Members of the group have a wide range of backgrounds. We used methods from biochemistry, c...
  • Aleksandr Kogan Dr Aleksandr Kogan
    My lab investigates the prosociality and well-being from biological, psychological, and cross-cultural perspectives. In particular, we are highly interested in cooperation, trust, altruism, positive emotions, close relationships, happiness, physic...
  • Dr Anna Korhonen
    Computational neurolinguistics, the application of natural language processing techniques to aid research in cognitive neuroscience, computational lexical semantics and comceptual structure
  • Dr Mark Kotter
    My group is interested in the biology of adult CNS stem and precursor cells in the context of disease. A particular focus lies on mechanisms of CNS remyelination, a stem/precursor cell-mediated process in which new myelin sheaths are restored to d...
  • Zoe Kourtzi Professor Zoe Kourtzi
    My work aims to understand the role of learning and experience in enabling humans of all ages to translate sensory experience into complex decisions and adaptive behaviours. Adaptive cognitive abilities are critical for survival and social interac...
  • Nikolaus Kriegeskorte Dr Nikolaus Kriegeskorte
    - visual object recognition - pattern-information analyses - computational modelling - functional magnetic resonance imaging - species relationships
  • Dina Kronhaus Dr Dina Kronhaus
    My research is focused on studying connectivity and neural re-organisation, in the human brain, using theoretical modelling techniques to complement analysis of experimental data. I aim to identify overlapping yet distinct neural circuits implicat...
  • Markus Kuhn Dr Markus Kuhn
    I am a Computer Scientist and one of my many interests include information-theoretic and signal-processing aspects of neural physiology, in models of human perception and learning, and in computer architectures specifically designed to execute bio...
