  • nigel unwin Dr Nigel Unwin
    I am interested in finding out how ion channels work, using electron microscopy to analyse their structures trapped in different physiological states. Current research focuses on the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, the transmitter-gated ion chan...
  • Vasja Urbančič Vasja Urbančič
    The growth cones of developing axons are guided on their journey through the developing nervous system by guidance cues that instruct their progression along a precise pathway towards their target area. The responses of growth cones to many of the...
  • Delshad Vaghari
    We are investigating bio-markers to early detection of dementia based on MEG with Machine Learning approach
  • Alessio Vagnoni Dr Alessio Vagnoni
    The main goal of my research is to better understand the mechanisms of neuronal ageing in vivo. I am particularly interested in studying how macromolecules, proteins and organelles are trafficked within neuronal axons and how this process is regul...
  • Maris Vainre
    I'm investigating whether mindfulness training improves attention and whether this improvement translates into workplace performance.
  • Natalie Valle Guzman Natalie Valle Guzman
    I work at the Brain Repair Centre as a neuropsychologist. I manage the Transeuro trial and assess Parkinson´s and Huntington's diaease patients in clinic with multiple neuropsychological assessments. I am particularly interested in cognitive enha...
  • Ms Vaka Valsdottir
    I am currently working on a project that will use EEG recordings to examine the effect of speaker gaze on infants' statistical language learning.
  • Charlotte van Coeverden Charlotte van Coeverden MSc
    I am interested in how rewards are coded in the brain and how this reflects on social behaviour.
  • Dr Jelle van den Ameele
    I am a neurologist with an interest in developmental neurobiology and mitochondrial genetics. In the lab, we study how cells and tissues respond to mitochondrial dysfunction, focusing on neural stem cells and the brain. Our goal is to identify nov...
  • Ms Mariska van der Hoff M.S.C.
    The influence of conversational therapies in moderately to severe depressed adolescents on relapse
  • Dr Agatha van der Klaauw
    I am currently working with Professor Sadaf Farooqi at the Institute of Metabolic Science. We use a number of genetic approaches, including whole-exome sequencing, to identify novel genes involved in hypothalamic development in patients with sever...
  • Dr Sander van der Linden
    Dr. Sander van der Linden is a University Lecturer in Psychology, Director of the Cambridge Social Decision-Making Lab and a Fellow of Churchill College. His research interests include social perception, normative influence, the “wisdom of crowds”...
  • Miss Aritha van der Stouw A.T.C.
    The influence of Conversational Therapies in moderate to severe depressed adolescents on relapse.
  • Dr Anne-Laura van Harmelen
    My research aims to understand the differential mechanisms that link negative family environments where children may be emotionally abused and/or neglected (child emotional maltreatment; CEM) with later mental health disorders, or resilience from ...
  • Ms Francesca van Tartwijk
    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a lethal neurodegenerative disease, characterised by the death of motor neurons. Though the causes of ALS are unknown, mutations in several genes have been linked to ALS, including in that encoding the protei...
  • Georgios Varsos Dr Georgios Varsos
    My focus has been on modelling of brain haemodynamics, particularly describing a terminal situation of cerebral circulation, associated with ischemic strokes. A new methodology was created which can be used for estimating brain’s zero-flow pressur...
  • Szilvia Vas Dr Szilvia Vas
    My research interest focuses on the regulation of sleep-wake architecture and brain oscillation in different behavioural states. I joined Professor Jenny Morton's research group in 2015 to study the alterations of sleep-wake pattern and EEG spec...
  • Frantisek Vasa Mr František Váša
    I study methods for the construction and analysis of human structural and functional brain networks, using data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Using these methods, I hope to help characterise healthy adolescent development, and to identify...
  • Deniz Vatansever Deniz Vatansever
    Extensive neuroimaging research has identified a set of brain regions with prominent activity during “no task” baseline conditions, collectively known as the default mode network. The DMN is hypothesized to drive a variety of functions including f...
