  • Tamana Darwish Miss Tamana Darwish
    Feeding behaviour and metabolic state are regulated by many factors- one of the them being nutrient intake. I am interested in how the body responds physiologically the intake of nutrients, in particular to amino acids, which are known to promote ...

  • Anthony Davenport Professor Anthony Davenport
    Our research group focuses on understanding the role of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs, targets for about ~50% of current drugs) together with their transmitters in humans. We use in vitro pharmacology, to determine how these are altered with ...

  • Sanne de Wit Dr Sanne de Wit
    Whilst our actions are often goal-directed, slips of action reveal that automatic, or habitual, mechanisms can take over. Although the concepts of goal-directed action and habits are well-grounded in folk psychology, most empirical research so far...
  • Julia Deakin Dr Julia Deakin
    I plan to experiment with brain imaging techniques and immunomics to look for early changes in psychosis. In particular, I am interested in supporting a recently identified group of patients with psychosis who have autoantibodies to the NMDA recep...

  • Dr Andrew Dean
    Interest in: i) Genetically-determined and developmentally acquired disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system and muscle, encompassing neuropathy, myopathy, dystrophy, neuropathy, malformation, epilepsy and mental retardation; ii) st...
  • Dr Janet Deane
    We study the role of lipid processing pathways in demyelinating neurodegenerative disease. We are interested in how the composition of cellular membranes is maintained and what the effects are when this composition is altered. Lipids and proteins ...
  • Mr Richard Dear
    I am a PhD student at the Brain Mapping Unit supervised by Petra Vertes and Ed Bullmore. I'm interested in using computational techniques to understand the neurobiology of mental health, with a particular focus on revealing the underlying biologic...
  • Dr Laura Dearden
    I am a post-doctoral research associate in Professor Sue Ozanne’s lab in the Institute of Metabolic Science. The Ozanne lab is interested in understanding how exposure to maternal obesity programs an increased risk of cardio-metabolic disease in o...
  • Natalia del Campo Dr Natalia del Campo
    My research focuses on the optimisation and application of multi-modal neuroimaging techniques to identify the neurobiological mechanisms underlying psychiatric conditions and associated cognitive deficits. One aspect I am particularly interested ...
  • Ms Nadene Dermody
    Despite the wealth of information available to us at any one time, we are able to navigate through these sensory-laden environments in a purposeful way. How do our brains select what is relevant to our current goal, direct our behaviour accordingl...
  • Barry Devereux Dr Barry Devereux
    My research is primarily focused on lexical and semantic processing, the conceptual structure of nouns and verbs, syntactic and semantic ambiguity in language comprehension, and object processing. I am interested in interdisciplinary aspects of l...
  • Anthony Dickinson Professor Anthony Dickinson
    My primary research interests concern learning, memory, motivation, and future planning in both humans and animals. My interest in learning and memory is focussed on the distinction between goal-directed and habitual instrumental behaviour as asse...
  • Dr Andrea Dimitracopoulos
    After training as a Biomedical Engineer at the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa, Andrea started his PhD in Theoretical Physics and Cell Biology at University College London, on the CoMPLEX programme. Under the supervision of Buzz Baum,...
  • Dr Eleni Dimou
    Tau is a soluble protein interacting with tubulin to stabilize microtubules. Under pathological conditions, it becomes hyperphosphorylated and adopts a filamentous conformation with a pivotal role in Alzheimer’s Disease pathogenesis. Although tau ...
  • Veronika Dobler Dr Veronika Dobler MRCPsych, PhD
    I am interested in the effect of Early Live Adversity (ELA) on neuro-cognitive development in later life. Psychological theories have long recognized that selective processing and distortions in appraisal of day-to day events as well as cognitive...
  • Nick Donnelly Mr Nick Donnelly
    I am interested in understanding how different brain regions, containing different types of neurons, and with different architectures, are able to work together to process information and produce adaptive behaviour. Currently I am investigating t...
