  • Tim Dalgleish Dr Tim Dalgleish
    I am broadly interested in affective neuroscience in relation to clinical depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I am particularly interested in mental control and emotion regulation in these conditions and the psychological and neu...
  • Jeff Dalley Professor Jeff Dalley
    Primary research interests include behavioural and cognitive neuroscience, psychopharmacology and neuromodulation of limbic cortico-striatal brain circuitry. Specific interests include behavioural and neurobiological endophenotypes and their trans...
  • 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 ...
  • Dr Maria Dauvermann
    I have a strong grounding in translational psychiatry and neuroimaging research with background in multimodal neuroimaging. In particular, I focus on the investigation of brain alterations that may underlie mood and psychotic disorders. Furthermor...
  • 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 ...
  • Dr Greg Davis
    Visual attention, Visual search, Unconscious processing, Security Applications, Autism
  • Matt Davis Dr Matt Davis
    My work is interdisciplinary, combining diverse methodologies from Cognitive Neuroscience to investigate the neural mechanisms involved in spoken and written language comprehension. I work on a range of topics, including speech perception, lexical...
  • Mario de Bono Dr Mario de Bono
    We seek to understand how neural networks are assembled, function and evolve. C. elegans is a powerful system to study neural circuits. The worm has exactly 302 neurons each of which can be identified. EM reconstructions have identified synapti...
  • Daniel De Haan Dr Daniel De Haan
    I am a postdoctoral research associate in the TWCF Theology, Philosophy of Religion, and the Sciences Project: Neuroscience Strand, Faculty of Divinity, and Translational Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, Department of Psychology, Cambridge Unive...
  • 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 Naomi Deakin MB BChir MA (Cantab)
    Dr Deakin is a PhD student in Clinical Neurosciences, co-supervised by Prof Peter Hutchinson (Neurosurgery) and Prof John Suckling (Psychiatry). Dr Deakin completed her medical training in Cambridge, followed by the Academic Foundation Programme i...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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...
  • Mr Richard Digby BA
    Under the supervision of Professor Paulsen, my research currently involves the study of Up-sates, a slow oscillation seen in cortical networks. I am investigating the receptor currents that contribute to the maintenance of this activity, and also ...
  • 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...
  • Miss Lena Dorfschmidt
    I am interested in the principles of whole-brain network organization in health and disease. I work on resting state MRI data in order to model trajectories of adolescent cortical development and identify disruptions in functional connectomics dur...
  • Maria-Eleni Dounavi
