  • Madeline Lancaster Dr Madeline Lancaster
    Human brain development exhibits a number of unique characteristics, such as dramatic size expansion, unique cell types, and distinct neural stem cell behaviors. These characteristics are difficult to examine in model organisms such as mice and ar...

  • Matthias Landgraf Dr Matthias Landgraf
    We seek to understand how neural networks are specified and how they assemble during development. The locomotor network of the Drosophila embryo and larva serves as a powerful experimental model. Composed of identified neurons whose connections ha...

    I am interested in emotion and gaze processing in neurotypicals and individuals with ASC.
  • Simon Laughlin Professor Simon Laughlin
    Our group is interested in discovering design principles that govern the structure and function of neurons and neural circuits. We record from well-defined neurons, mainly in flies’ visual systems, to measure the molecular and cellular factors tha...
  • Alexandra Lautarescu Miss Alexandra Lautarescu
    I am interested in the link between Down Syndrome and the high risk of developing Alzheimer's Disease and I am currently conducting an MPhil under the supervision of Prof. Anthony Holland and Dr. Shahid Zaman, as part of the "Defeat dementia in Do...
  • Dr Janin Lautenschläger
    I am interested in neurodegenerative diseases, in particular on processes at the synapse. A very recent concept in biology is the finding that synaptic proteins can undergo phase separation, forming condensed droplets in another liquid phase (like...
  • Dr Andrew Lawrence
    I am a psychologist with interests in the application of neuropsychological testing and advanced MRI techniques to understand cognitive function and dysfunction. I am currently investigating cognitive decline and MRI markers of pathology associate...
  • Dr Rebecca Lawson
    We all have expectations about how the how the world should look, feel, smell, taste and sound. These expectations act as predictions to guide us when we are uncertain, and signal when something out of the ordinary is happening. My work uses com...
  • Ms Carolina Leal
    I am interested in how children with cochlear implants process sounds to understand how specific aspects of their auditory processing abilities influence their listening and spoken language outcomes.
  • Michael Lee Dr Michael Lee
    Chronic pain is defined simply as pain that persists beyond 3 months, but in reality is a suffering marked by emotional distress and physical disability. For many patients, the extent of disease or injury does not fully account for the severity of...
  • Máté Lengyel Professor Máté Lengyel
    I study learning and memory from computational, algorithmic/representational and neurobiological viewpoints. I also maintain an active interest in the possible computational functions of neural oscillations, particularly those present in the hippo...
  • Victoria Leong Dr Victoria Leong
    I am a developmental cognitive neuroscientist who is interested in the interpersonal neural dynamics of mother-infant interactions. Right now, I am studying the phenomenon of oscillatory coupling or synchronisation between mother and infant brains...
  • Tilman Lesch Tilman Lesch
    My research is focused on human cognition and brain mechanisms relevant for learning and decision-making under uncertainty. I’m interested how personality factors such as impulsiveness or novelty seeking are related to individual’s decision-making...
  • Rui Li
    In my PhD project, I am applying machine learning techniques to diagnose and predict disease progression in vascular cognitive impairment, as a result of cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD). I work with both MRI and neuropsychological test data f...
  • Colleen Limegrover
    The aim of my work is to investigate the role of glial cells in traumatic brain injury. Heterogeneity of pathology in patients with TBI creates a complex problem, in terms of modeling the disorder. Secondary injury cascades, including excitotoxici...
  • Dr Julie Qiaojin Lin
